Default Paper Towel Storage for the pantry

Finding space for an eight-pack of paper towels in our pantry was always a pain and then digging in the partially opened pack for a new roll was annoying because invariably something else got stacked on top of it.

I finally got around to building my concept of a paper towel storage/dispenser that will hold nine rolls of paper towels so I can grab one when I need it.

Overall size is roughly 12 3/4" wide, 6 1/2" deep, and 40" tall and ó best of all ó made with material I already had on hand. The towels load in the open top and gravity feed to the bottom. A 1 x 2 stops keeps the bottom towel from rolling off the slightly angled delivery platform.

Everything was assembled with glue, staples, brads, and pocket screws for the face frame. A more permanent version could be designed to inset into the wall between studs.

Great idea, Oliver. I think I know just the place for copy of that.

Took the words right out of my mouth................ I'll have to run the idea past the one who gets to make the decisions around here.

UH-OH. My sweetie just saw the picture! She is in the kitchen thinking...

I heard her exclaim...
"I like the idea, I just don't know how to make it work."

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!
