Multiple TP Holder (simple)

This was just a simple project idea that came to mind. I myself hate it when the TP is either empty or not even there (and I’m sure evryone else can relate. So, with that happening very often I came up with an idea so that when the roll gets empty, it drops into the trash and the next one falls into place. (A very lazy idea but it works) So that is exactly how this project works. The whole on the bottom is perfectly sized so when the roll gets empty it slips right through. I didn’t make it very fancy I know and I could’ve done much better but this was just a quick idea to see how it would follow through. Made with 3/8” cedar so your TP smells good too :P

patent pending al lol

patron i love being back at work with a real job. I can now slowly afford material to get me back in my shop. 10.25/hr compared to $23/hr + benefits. I would much rather do what I love and enjoy the benefits as well

Very cool idea! Necessity breeds invention, as they say. :) The cedar is really pretty too.

That is so cool. I would just pull on the paper all day to watch the next one fall down. (Simple minds entertain easily).

Good job,

Good idea, clever way to use some wall space and solve an annoying problem. Well done.

Yaaa Mark! I’m so glad you saw my iteration of your idea. It’s a great idea! The reason I kept the front open is so that my wife or I can see at a glance that it needs to be refilled. Other than that and it’s kind of plain, I stuck to your original idea. Thanks man!

I threw a little divider between the bottom and the next one up that I can slide in and out when the next one is needed
