Who doesn’t love masking tapes? These days it seems like they’re everywhere and I tried to find a good way to organize my little collection. So last week I built a wooden tape dispenser to hold them and I thought you might like to build one too. This one can hold up to 7 rolls of masking tape – but you can also built a larger one…
What you need
– wood (12 x 28 cm, 12 mm thick / 5 x 11 inches, 0.5 inches thick)
– a rod with 2,5 mm (1 inch), 16 cm long (6.4 inches)
– a rod with 6 mm (0.3 inches), 16 cm long (6.4 inches)
– 6 nails
– wood glue
Step 1: Cut the wood in 3 pieces: the bottom and the two side panels.
Step 2: Draw the side panel slots on both side panel and cut.
Step 3: Mark the position for the small rod and drill the holes.
Step 4: Mark the position for the side panels on the bottom and hammer the nails through the bottom into the side panels.
Step 5: Put some glue in the holes and insert the small rod.
Step 6: Put your masking tapes on the larger rod and put in place.
Voila! There you have your own wooden tape dispenser.
If you like, you can also paint it.
