Intro: Toiletpaper Holder Made From Scrap/Scrapwood

Well here´s all litlle thing we all need, a toiletpaper holder.

in most cases these things are made of chinese plastic or cheap chromed thin metal.
so when we refinished our flat i think about doing this better by spending no money!

So i lokked at things i dont need any longer and found some piece of wood, my old bycicle bottom bracket and some used
metal angles.


All i had to do was saw out an suitable piece of the wood, finish it a bit with a niche curve and rim, paint with a little leftover of
mahagoni varnish, do  the angles on and pin it to the wall.



I hope you folks like it.

    Nice design, but an Instructable is supposed to show HOW you did that, not just the finished product.
    Questions:
    - What is a bicycle bottom bracket and how / where did you use it?
    - What is a niche curve?
    - I don't see a rim; where's the rim?
    - What do you mean by 'do the angles on it'?
    - Most importantly (for me), how did you 'pin it to the wall'?

    I have one of those cheap plastic ones and it has died. I'd like to replace it and I thought this looked nice, but there's not enough information for me to do anything with it.

    Actually.. an instructible could be either just photos (to inspire), or a step-by-step, or a video..
    But yes, I'd like to see a bit more detail please.. If Falkenberg doesn't mind..
    at least a close-up picture of the bracket from the side to see how you put in a new roll..

    Again, nice wood finishing! i like it..
