We are slowly building a Makerspace (eccmakers.com) out of a building the Long Hollow Nieghborhood Association is loaning. We have had our trials and tribulations and had to rebuild earlier this year because a freak flood in July 2012. Because I have been so ocused on the big picture, I keep forgetting to do is buy a paper towrel rack for the bathroom.
I went to get one today and the local stores I visited didn't have a wall mounted unit. Mother Necessity inspired me suddenly when I was told for the third time: "sorry we have no racks...", I realized we had piles of cables from a E-Waste collection at the space and I remembered how we used to hang the towels on a small piece of rope in the shop when I was young. I found a composite cable in the mess which I thought would make very appropriate decoration for a Makerspace paper towel holder.
The parts you will need:
- a cable
- some zip ties
- two hooks
- and the towels of course
Step 1: Fold It
The cable I found folded nicely three times leaving each end with the composite cables connectors. attach a zip-tie near each end to gather the cable folds and make a very small loop at the end. Trim the excess zip-tie.
