Introduction: Bathroom Caddy

This is a cute little bathroom caddy to hold your tooth powder, brush, water glass, beard oil, or whatever. I made this out of scrap wood and finished with a whitewash. I made three at one time because you can never have enough.

I do not give measurements because you can make these any size you wish with the material at hand.

I used the following tools but one could easily get by with all hand tools:

band saw

table saw

cordless drill

cordless impact driver


You will need wood, screws, and finish of choice.

To see my other projects go to

Step 1: Gather Your Wood and Supplies

You will need wood and screws. You can use any type of wood that you have around. I have this wood that was someone else's project leftovers, so this is my choice. I always use GRK screws. The hex head is easy to drive and they look good!

Step 2: Cut the Bottom and Sides

I cut the bottom and sides using a straight line and the bandsaw. You can play with the dimensions to make this hold the desired objects from your bathroom.

Step 3:

For the top rail I decided to notch the side and rip a board to make a small square strip to attach. This keeps everything inside the caddy and also strengthens it a bit.

Step 4:

The pieces screw together and then the caddy will need some sanding. Pre-drill your holes to keep the wood from splitting and sand until you are happy with the results. I sanded to 100 grit as this doesn't need to be real smooth.

Step 5: Finish

I wanted a bleached white look for mine, so I stained with Minwax pickled white finish. Two coats seemed to do the job well and then I sprayed with Minwax water based sealant.
