I build this for our bathroom, yesterday. It all came out of my scrap pile, I love to recycle. We needed a toilet paper holder and this is a two roll holder and adding the magazine slot was my wife’s idea and a darn good one at that just goes to show you two heads are better than one when it comes to design. We still have to sand it and put a finish on, and of course install it in its place of honor; we should be enjoying it by weekend.

nice project Joey. Sometimes two heads arrrre better than one. My wife gives me design ideas every once and a while. Some times they are really good ideas.

Great piece of necessary hardware. Yes two heads do give you a different look. But sometimes they are pointing in different directions.

Great job on the collaborative effort.

If two heads are better than one then you need another holder for the other bathroom.

-- No piece is cut too short. It was meant for a smaller project.

Nice project. I assume that since there is space for two rolls of TP – that you have a two holer? :-))

It’s nice, but I can see a moose waiting to be carved and trees that need some chisel marks :) Give it a try it is on some scrap.

I love it! Unfortunately, my darling wife would never allow anything that would contribute to my habit of reading in the throne room, which she, for some reason, seems to find distasteful.
