This is a house warming gift for my sister. The house she just moved into has maple cabinets and she needed a paper towel holder.

This one is maple and walnut and is finished with semi gloss lacquer. The sides are doweled and glued to the back plate so no screws are showing.

The last show shows the 1/4-20 machine screw threads in the spindle.

Cheers, Jim

Nice twist to the classic holder with your addition of Walnut! I’m sure your sister will love it.

Hey nice holder Jim. Love the stripe of walnut in it. I have furniture in the house that way. Cool idea with the 1/4-20. I ended up using a wood threader on mine. Take care.

Very nice Jim and I agree with Woodfix, so much better than a shop bought one. Great idea and design.

Oh thanks ever so much Jim….you know I now gotta try and make one of these…lol I am thinking mine will be a tad bit less Jim like. Been wanting a paper towel dispenser for the shop to put those blue rolled shop towels on. Was gonna buy one but you have thrown down the gauntlet and I may have to see if I can answer…lol Thats super nice and am thinking she will be quite pleased with it.
