Wooden Paper Towel Holder

About: Come spend some time in the shop. I'm a hobbyist woodworker and professional computer geek in Northern California. I guess my projects will vary widely, and I have no clue what I plan to make next...

A domestic request from my bride. I used ash and plywood to make a new paper towel holder for my kitchen. The finish is enamel, but any film finish would work.
This is a simple project, but dead useful. I really like the plywood lamination, but it is a bit more work during the sanding section, but allows you to use up shop scraps rather than toss them out!

    Nice paper towel holder. Great use of scrap plywood. My wife asked me why I keep my scraps...here's her answer. I'll have to jump right on it and make her one with my scraps.

    It's good to have a handy defense system in place in case of intruders and guns are dangerous, especially if you have small children. This is definitely a great alternative ;) haha
