If you ever need to wrap a package or box for mailing or make a box for a special project, you need to have tape handy. Especially helpful when wrapping gifts at Christmas time or other holidays. I came up with this idea to be able to use only one hand, tear off what I needed and hold the project with the other hand. Tape is easily added or removed, and the whole thing is easily stored as it is held in place by a c-clamp or other clamp of choice.
Step 1: Parts you need to make this
There are 5 pieces of wood used in this project. I cut down a two by four that I salavaged.
1. Base: 3/4 inch pine, 7 1/4 x 11 inches.
2. Two uprights: pieces of 2x4; 2.5x2.5x1.5inches.
3. One crossbar: 2 1/2 x 10 x 1 1/2inch.
4. Tape cutting mount, 2 1/2 x 6 1/4 x 1 1/2inch.
Total= 5 pieces
Two bolts with nuts are needed: 5/16 x4 1/2 bolts with nuts and 2 washers each.
One piece of hacksaw blade, cut or broken to fit the tape cutting mount.
