Step 1: The Base

Basically, to make the base of the tinker toy-let paper holder (haha how I love puns), take the 8 short rods, and push them into each of the 8 holes on the outside of the spool. Make sure they are all securely stuck inside the holes.

Step 2: Final Construction

Lastly, take the longest rod, and push it into the hole in the middle of the spool. Wow, you're done already! :D

Step 3: Finishing Touches

All that's left to do is to slide the toilet paper rolls onto the holder. Place your toilet paper holder next to your toilet. I hope you enjoy your practically free toilet paper holder!
