    This is an amazing project. Congratulations to Tommy on making this. The instructions are very easy with clear pictures and colours. It’s a practical thing to have in every workshop or in the kitchen also the addition of a shelf with the Edge on the top of towel holder is a great idea.

    Hi Tommy, thank you for the great idea and instructions. Like you I was looking for a holder, but one which held two rolls. One paper towel and one shop towel. I took your plans and customized it for my use. Everything is great. Very happy with the finished product. Thanks again. Take care and stay safe.
