I made this for my son in law who is an avid fisherman. My many thanks go out to Shopdog and especially thelt who sent me a copy of the plans.

I deveated from the plans a little. For one thing I bought the spring loaded tube at the hardware store. The handle turns on the end of a brass screw.

The main body is 1/2” red oak and the handle, drag adjuster, gear box, and dowels are made from mahogany.
The part that mounts to the wall is red oak with red oak stain.

Thanks for looking

-- Emmett, from Georgia

I like this. I was thinking of turning some parts for a fly reel and your tp holder has inspired me.

That was “reely” neat! I guess you are all done except for the paperwork.

Those are so neat and you’ve done a nice job building it too. Do you use them to fish for toilet trout?

You certainly go to the bottom of that project woody57

Does it have a very loud ratchet so you can tell if someone is using too much paper ? LOL

Unique idea and well done. You kind of change the priorities of a fishing real usually with a fishing real it’s more important to real in ,but in this case it’s more important to real out. :))
