Introduction: Decorative K'NEX Toothbrush Holder With Rotating Display Stand

Here is my latest project: a decorative K'NEX toothbrush holder with a rotating display stand, powered by a Tethered Power Pack Motor. It can hold up to four toothbrushes, is very simple to make, and (in my opinion) looks very nice. It also includes a piece count. (see Step 1) I hope you enjoy making and using this! Below is a video of this project.

Awesome! How fast does it spin?

I would attach a drill chuck to it, and use it to help roast marshmallows :)


Well, the motor that powers it spins at about 34 RPM, so that's about how fast the wheel spins. I should have a video uploaded soon, and then you can see for yourself.


Just uploaded a video! Check out the intro to see it.
