Pallet Toilet Paper Dispenser

 

I didn’t have a toilet paper holder in my main downstairs bathroom.  Thus the outhouse TP dispenser was commissioned.  Not sure if I can commission myself to make something but hey I did!  I built it to hold one of the larger toilet paper rolls and two spares in the bottom.  It was an exciting time.  The child was excited to have toilet paper in a holder instead of just on the counter.

Hey look pallet wood! This is the two sides and the back all cuts to the appropriate sizes

I cut the back two pieces at an angle.

Cutting the boards for the bar that holds the toilet paper. I drilled a hole and cut the rest out with a jigsaw.

Sizing the door to make sure the size is good. I cut out a crescent with a jig saw too to make it an authentic outhouse door! Although I've never really seen an outhouse with one. Also wouldn't that enable people to look in? Seems kind of impractical thinking about it now.

Added the shelf under the roll. I measured out the height of two rolls of toilet paper and placed it there.

Staining is occurring obviously.

 

Finished product. I didn't stain the holder bar for the toilet paper. It's hidden anyways.
