The thickness of the piece is depending from the hole of your paper roll.

You can also use a round dowel (may be better)

cut it under 60° ( i also tried 45° but 60° works better)

the length depends if you make it for a toilet paper roll (shorter) or for a paper towel (longer)

Step 2: Drill a Hole

The best part about this is you will never hear people complain about which is the 'right' way to load the toilet paper.
