Step 1: Make the bottom

Picture of Make the bottom
I'm not going to get too specific with measurements here, since my goal was to make a one size fits all dispenser.  I just took all the rolls of tape I had lying around and put them next to each other and added significant length to accommodate the tape I had and allow for some additional roles of different types in the future.  The fat tape types like duct tape, packing tape and  painters tape all have a hole in the middle that will be accommodated by the 3" pvc, and the electrical tape and tapes with a similar sized central opening will be taken care of by the 1.5" PVC... look at the picture, understand that the two types are separated by ~1" and adjust to accommodate whatever tape you have lying around plus some.  Cut a bottom piece long enough at the full width of the fence slat.  I made mine 22" long.

Amazing, works great!
This is nice! This inspired me to make a similar, but simpler contraption.

I need to do something with my tape roll bin. Something like this would not work out well for me though. But it has given me an idea ...

I see a similar design previously posted here http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Make-an-Easy-to-use-Tape-Dispenser/ that wouldn't require a router and may suit peoples needs fine. Whatever floats your boat.
