Made these holders for the customized bathroom bags the boys got as gifts from grandma and grandpa (probably so they would come visit more). They’re really cool, but they’re usually sprawled out all over the bathroom counter and cluttering things up. That and the boys would just chuck their toothbrushes in and sometimes (usually) miss, so they were always getting confused, germs were frequently shared, etc. It was time to make something to tidy up and look good too.

These were mostly made from scraps. They’re all red oak stained with Minwax Ipswich Pine to match the existing trimwork. I did have to cut into a new board to get pieces wide enough for the backs and fronts, but I was able to resaw and plane down to 1/4 thickness to make it go twice as far.

I put 3 big screws into studs for EACH for the inevitable event these are used as rock holds. I think they came out well, and the bathroom looks good too. Each kid has their own clearly defined space now, and as a bonus, whenever it’s time for a trip to grandma and grandpas, their stuff is already all ready to go :)

That’s a very cool idea, but 6 boys. I’m impressed you are still sane (at least it appears you are).
