This is the holder for C-fold paper towels – bought two boxes of those instead of roll towels we typically use.

The body is made of ½” jatoba offcuts, the bottom part is stained acacia wood. Butt joints are strengthened with dowels. Finish – linseed oil and wipe-on poly.

considering how hard it is to get roll towels these days might be a good project right now.

Nice holder. I made a cabinet style one cause of lack of bench space in the shop. I like these towels much better than the rolled ones.

Not so stupid a mistake to get those towels as you chastise yourself for… the benefits are,
  • You can get a towel one handed.
  • Easier to have at the table than a roll.
  • Good excuse to make a great looking holder.

No mistake there – wanted to try different form factor.

Have your say...
