Step 1: Materials You Will Need:

-.5 thick piece of wood(area big enough for toilet paper roll)
-cylinder shaped piece of wood (refer to photo)
-1 long screw
-drill bit
-screwdriver(hand, or electric)

possibly a saw(if you need to cut out the platform the right size)

Step 2: Drill

Get out your drill bit and drill a hole right in the center(make sure it goes straight!) of the cylinder piece and one in the center of the platform as well. Doing each separately is much easier than trying to do both at once.

Step 3: Screw

Now use your screwdriver to screw the screw into the 2 holes made in order to connect them together. Note that the longer the screw, the better because the cylinder will have more durability/strength and will not wobble around.

Step 4: Finished!!

Fast, simple, reliable. Get the cylinder piece from Home Depot for 51c. Now you can avoid running out of toilet paper when you need it most! [-; Plus you'll always know when you're toilet paper is in stock.

    You could drop your extra toilet paper on a plunger. You know, the one that sits next to your toilet--aaah, yes!

    You COULD, but that's not very smart since you might actually need to use the plunger...that's why these came in smart one. =]
