Hi Rodney.

I like it. Not sure if there are similar designs out there already but if there are, I have not seen one.

Impressed.

Re: Toilet roll holder / shelf

 Nice work!

I have been in a silent war with toilet paper for years in my house. They like to fall on my head when I open the linen cupboard, or trip me in the middle of the night when someone has dragged out the whole box to get one roll.

You have inspired me to create a solution to my 'spare rolls' drama.

Re: Toilet roll holder shelf

 

re @Juststarting, sorry for the delay in responding to your question! Think all i used was about 110mm wide pinewood lengths and just cut them down to the typical deepth of a roll of toilet paper. Did some rough dry fitting to find out how many rolls would fit depending on the size, came up with a measurement that looked about right relating the  overall size of  the wall which was going to hang.

 

The shelf was trial and error, there is a formula for cutting a  shelf with beveled edges on it so it fits diagonally flush to the corners, use google to help to fit it. And finally once it was made, i just used some timber stain and brushed it and then used a old rag to spread the stain out and thin it out, enough to sort of see some of the orginal pine come thru
