Minimal Paper Towel Holder...to keep that counter top clear of clutter.
Minimal Paper Towel Holder
I used scrap wood from previous projects to make this but if you are buying new, here's your list...
1 1/4" dowel
1x2" common board
3/4" spade bit
Cut your 1x2 and 1 1/4" dowel to 13" - this will be the top and bottom
Cut your 3/4" dowel to 4" - this will attach the top and bottom pieces
Mark 1" into each of the top and bottom pieces
Use a 3/4" spade bit to gently drill a half inch into each piece where you marked.
Do this on both the top and bottom pieces.
Fill the hole on the 1x2 with wood glue and insert 3/4" dowel. Insert 1" screw for stability.
Make sure you predrill your hole.
Attach the 1x2 to the underside of your cabinet in desired location with screws.
Once mounted, fill the hole on the larger dowel with wood glue and attach it to the 3/4" dowel with a screw for extra stability. I filled this hole with wood filler to hide the screw.
Slide that paper towel roll on and you are good to go!
