This is something that my wife had asked for. I had no plans and no idea how it would turn out. It is made with pine and 1/4 cherry ply back. It can hold two rolls. I know I know that I should have had woodsmith, shopnotes or wood magazine in it as it is in the throne room. LOL

“Paper work” comes to my mind. It makes the wife happy, and serves a vaulable purpose. Nice job.

so did SWMBO want one of those just to keep the pile of your wood magazines off the floor?

Nice design with combined usage. That is great.
Would be very nice to keep receipe books or cooking magazines and place it in the kitchen.
Just kidding..
Take care and work safe.

She Who Must Be Obeyed should be happy with this. I agree though you need you some woodworking magazines in there. :-)

The paper should roll over the top unless you have a cat. Just ask Archie Bunker. bbqKing

The paper is on the way SWMBO wants it. I have been chewed out for putting the paper on the top. And the cats don’t mess with it.
