Hello everyone. These are some items i made a few months ago. I can’t remember where I got the idea for the paper towel holder. The little bread boards and the cheese cutter are made from plans i found in a Lowes magazine. I think I’ll make some of these as Christmas gifts. Thanks for looking guys.

These will make wonderful gifts. I particularly like the design of the paper towel holder. It has a skyscraper look to it. Very nices pieces.

Does the towel holder have enough weight to stay put when you pull a towel off and tear it free? They all look nice.

Great work Leith! I know that they will be used with pride by whoever gets them. If you don’t mind I just may borrow the paper towel holder idea from you.

Thanks guys! There is a rod that runs from the top and one that is mounted throught the bottom. just remove the top and insert a new roll onto the rod mounted on the bottom. Sorry, I should have mentioned that before. It works great though. To OttoH: Go right ahead. I got the idea from a napkin holder I saw online. Can’t wait to see your version.

Nice. I really like the paper towel holder. Dose that have a piece all the way through the towel or just on the ends?
