A buddy of mine sent me a message yesterday wanting to know if I could make him a couple of toilet paper holders for the restrooms of his new business. He said he wanted them free standing since he didnt want to mount anything on the walls. Since I had never made anything like this before, the project perked my interest…not to mention that it gave me a break from the cabinet build I am doing for my sister….lol. After doing scientifical measurements of a roll of toilet paper (4.000 inches by 5.000 inches BTW) and a quick trip to the local hardware to grab a couple of plastic spools and a 1 1/8” dowel rod..it was time to put these things together. Assembly was only with screws since I wasnt exactly sure it was gonna work. If I ever build another of these I think I would glue the butt joints but was still pretty happy with how sturdy it seems to be with only the screws. Finished with clear poly.
