I found this simple project from Family Handyman. It’s basically a large paper tower holder with Rosin Paper being the paper towel. Pretty simplistic; Steel pipe, rosin paper, leftover cedar boards, and leftover hardboard used for doors (comes in handy if you want wooden textures on something 1/8” thick and still be cheap). I modified the project so that it’s removable from the bench. It goes over the edge of the bench and stays in place via friction. I am considering some sort of hook and eye bolt connection underneath to keep it secure for those just-in-case scenarios.
The other end of the bench is going to get a Moxno Vise that I’ll be building soon. Between the jigs and workbench features I want to add, I’m having a tough time making time for my projects…I guess that’s normal. lol. Thanks for looking.

Funky idea. I might have to add one to my bench. Thanks for sharing.

This is a really nice addition to a bench. Out of the way, but, right at your finger tips when you need to cover the bench.

Yes, I really do love this. I use it all the time for glue ups, staining, whatever, but I think the best part is the fact that it’s removable, since it does sit above the bench a little. I take it off every now and then when I have a large sheet I need to cut, since my bench is also the outfeed table. The original design was to make it permanent, but that just didn’t sit too well with me for some reason. No complaints here. :)
