We always need a Tape Dispenser!
I think it's a good gift to do and not difficult.
For this two models I only use plywood, a piece of steel and a reclaimed piece of copper pipe.
Step 1: The Body
The rough work to preform the body of the dispenser is with hand saw and raspe. When you have the basic form you can glue it
Step 2: Some Details
You can make a few drill to do pencil holders.
And work with raspe to give it a nice design. Using saw and chisel the work is more easy.
Step 3: The Finishes
For the finishes I carve two Celtic triskeles. After sanding, I varnish it.
Step 4: The Details
For the cutter I use a piece of copper pipe and the result is great!!!
Step 5: The Result
I hope you like it, share and comment.
