A TP holder made from reclaimed chestnut. Not happy with the finish on this one (tung oil). I think the next time I’ll just use a sanding sealer and satin poly.
The inside holds 3 rolls.

go for it, scott. if you want, here are the dimensions…
sides – 5 1/2” deep, 23” at peak, 20 1/2” at back.floor and section above the door – 5 1/2” deep, 5 3/4” widedoor – 5 1/2” x 15” roof – 8 1/4” x 7 1/4”
There is a piece of hardboard on the back.
I used a 1 inch dowel, drilled both holes on the sides at the same time, but did not go through on the one side. Drilled a hole in the dowel for a smaller dowel to hold it all in place.
have fun building one!

I like this project, I actually need something like this in my bathroom. I think I might try to add a magazine rack somehow. I was looking at pictures of real outhouses and thought this one might be fun to copy. :)

Might I suggest heating up the tounge oil and adding beeswax say a 1 to 1 ratio. Not to hot mind you and apply while warm and then rub it in till you get a wonderful sheen. It will really surprise you and you can put it right over top of what you have already done.
