This week I’m teaming up with my friends at RYOBI to bring you an easy, DIY Paper Towel Dispenser! In our kitchen, it’s fair to say I have an unhealthy addition with clearing the counters. I hate clutter, and the paper towel stand falls on that list. Luckily with just a few cuts of crown molding I made a beautiful dispenser for disposable hand towels (the flat kind, not the roll) that will clean up the counter and hopefully keep us from wasting the big pieces we were pulling off the roll. It could be used under the cabinets next to the sink or in the bathroom above the sink. If it weren’t so pretty, I might have kept it in my shop too!

And the winner is….Kristen S. from Massachusetts. When I emailed Kristen to tell her she won, she was sweet enough to share the words below of excitement and kindness. Thank you Kristen! You are the epitome of the reason why we run contests like this and why I love doing what I do here at Build Basic!


Kristen says, “My interest in woodworking started about 5 years ago when my husband and I moved into one of our first apartments together. With student loans and other expenses, most furniture and decor pieces were out of our price range. Building some of the furniture helped us save a ton of money and it turned into a new hobby for me! By winning this giveaway, I am most looking forward to expanding my current tool selection and taking on more advanced projects. Thank you so much to Jenn and Ryobi for this wonderful opportunity – can’t wait to start building!”
