Things to make when life is really giving it to you!

I am currently making a curved front box its testing my patience skills grey matter and my bowels as well so.

What better project to make than a paper holder.
I have a 2.5” round over bit, and heaps of materials so when a friend of Aurora’s called asking me to make them a toilet paper roll holder it couldn’t have been better timed.

I used some stock Blood wood for the base and cut the base circle at 15 degrees.

Milled up some Oregon (Douglas fir) into a biggish dowel
Used a 35 mm forsther bit to make the hole.
Sanded a slight taper on the dowel stock.
Applied Titebond III glue.
Glued it in.
Trued it all up, let it dry, and then applied some Tung Oil, ready to go!!!

-- Regards Rob

Nice job. Quite useful for when you’re feeling really sh**y.

I like them. Well done. A good way to clear the LIVER.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Have your say...
