How many times when we are in the workshop all of us need to write down a quick note, measurement or a list of things to buy and we have difficulty of finding a piece of paper or a pen/pencil to write with? I know it happened to me quite a few times.
So when I saw this caddy in a magazine (I think it was in shopnotes) I knew that it was a must to do small project.
Its dimensions depend on the paper roll size you are going to use. I had a few rolls from a cash machine but they where in different lengths. That’s why you will see two pieces of paper roll hold-on on each side to mach the length of the rolls.
Made out of scrap 9mm MDF, and a piece of a dull hacksaw blade for cutting the paper, it’s an easy project to do that will also prove to be a very useful one. Doesn’t need to be fancy, just handy!
French cleat hanging system at the back helps to keep it mobile if needed.
Dimensions: This one is about 5.5” X 5.2” X 3.4”
Oh and one more thing. You know of those free IKEA give away short pencils? They are perfect for this caddy!!! ;-)
Many times we come into the shop and we can’t find where we last left our measuring tape, so I thought what a better place to make a tape holder than on my Note Caddy to store the measuring tape!
Two pieces of 10mm scrap wood and a 2mm metal plate fixed on the left side of the Caddy did the job for me and improved the Note Caddy design as well.
