Project Information

I have never claimed to be an innovator. When I saw something with great idea and design I don't mind copying it. About 20 days ago Jim Jakosh posted what I considered as a cute idea for a TP holder. I have a small board of poplar laying around in my shop so I decided to use that and make a Jim Jakosh TP holder.

The handle was made of half of a $1.50 3" drawer pull or should I say $0.75 half a drawer pull:). It was finished with Minwax water based American Walnut stain and then 3 clear coats of Polycrylic. I haven't decided what to do with it yet as my wife said it does not fit the decor of our house/bathroom. I may give it away as a gag birthday gift to a friend or I just keep it. On other hand since I have a spare handle I may just make another one!

Thanks for looking!

My first thoughts was the nephew would try to use it if he was not being watched. (he's 4) She laughed and said thats for sure. boys will be boys

Make more of those, and give them to Fire Depts. and such. Now, they would get a good kick out of those. They might even get to your place faster, now they have a spare TP roll.

Your wife is correct. You should have painted it white enamel and then it would work.
