Here is a project that I found online. I am redoing my bathroom to be a “Man’s Bathroom” with an outdoor theme. I’m eventually gonna do a picture frame full of fishing fly’s and a few other ideas. Anyways, here is a tp holder for those times after the local mexican joint when one roll just might not be enough lol.

The top behind the antlers holds magazines for your entertainment. Thanks for looking

Update: Dimensions are 18” H x 16 deep at longest point of radius in the bottom arch. The middle piece between the TP rolls is 6.5” H, and matches the profile of the outsides with a flat top. The piece that the magazines rest on are 12”L x 3.75” wide, which corresponds with the inner radius of your outside pieces.

These measurements will be rough guidelines depending on the actual design of your pattern. Also tossed up a few more pictures and my drawings (although I don’t know if they’ll be readable on the picture)

Thanks, after some suggestions on here I placed an order for my first router and am excited for a few different ideas on these that I want to try for friends that wanted them made. They sell in Cabelas for $100 and are fake antlers. I hand drew the pattern and figured out the dimensions by going off of a toilet paper roll and 8 1/2” x 11” magazine. When I go home I’ll get dimensions that I figured out if anyone is interested. By the way this is Hickory scrap from a friends kitchen remodel.

Ahh, empirical measurements. Guaranteed fit . . . until someone makes a larger magazine! See, what you need to do is incorporate a tablet reader on a swing arm. You can use the TP holder as a handle and go digital! :)

Well done.

Nice accent piece. You can’t buy real antlers at Cabelas.
