All you need is a few strips of wood, a rectangular piece of wood, a strong adhesive and a few nails(optional) to create this piece. Join the strips to create rectangular mesh like structures and attach at the bottom of a rectangular piece. Attach some strips on the top to create a hut shape. Hang your rolls by inserting wood strips across two facing squares
Step 1: Material
1. Some wood strips
2. A rectangular piece of wood ( I have used white laminated piece)
2. Furniture adhesive
3. Few Nails
Step 2: Create Mesh Structure
Create two identical rectangular mesh like structures each by attaching 7 small strips(5.5 inch) over 4 long strips(13 inch). Use adhesive to attach the strips. Leave the ends open. Let dry.
Step 3: Attach Mesh to Rectangular Piece
Take the rectangular piece of wood. Attach each mesh to the bottom on both sides of rectangular piece. Let dry.You can also nail the joins to make it more sturdy.
Step 4: Create Cross Structures
Attach two equal size strips(11 inch) to create a cross as shown in picture. Create four such crosses. Let dry.
Step 5: Attach Crosses to Top
Attach both ends of each cross to the inner sides of top open ends of both meshes. Leave some margin at the ends of each cross. The idea it to create a hut like structure.
Step 6: Create Mesh on Top
Attach some strips(5.5 inch) at the top of the crosses to create squares.
Step 7: Hang Your Rolls
Now you can hang any rolls by inserting a wooden strip/rod across two facing squares.You can also paint it in your favorite color and add fun elements like I have placed a bird and a laughing Buddha.
Your kitchen roll house is ready.
