Hey folks,
New to the forum here, and have a question. This evening at dinner, my mother-in-law inquired about a “box” for a roll of saran wrap that could sit on her counter top. I am not having much luck finding a pic on the net, so I wondered if anyone would have any ideas.

Hey Joe Welcome to LJs
I would just use a box the wrap comes in as a estimate of the correct size and adjust for the thickness of the wood. You could use a hacksaw blade to cut the wrap with and maybe have a sliding top to put the plastic wrap in the box.

Ditto on Jim’s comments. Check with her about maybe making a multiple rolled goods dispenser; Plastic wrap, waxed paper, and Aluminum foil.

Or, make one that mounts under the cabinet – leaves the counter top free and utilizes free space.

Here’s some different ideas

Multi Dispenser
Another One
Last One

(Obviously, you’ll need to translate the first two to wood)

Here is one that might work for you. I made this to mount on the wall in my shop to hold waxed paper. Found it in one of my magazines but think I have seen it online somewhere as well.

I was right, it was on Wood Magazine’s website – Waxed Paper Dispenser.

If you want to get a little more complicated, you might try this kitchen organizer. Plans for this are available are available on Binky's Woodworking Website.

Hope that this helps.
