Grade 8 Shop Assignment #15 Paper Towel Holder

Today I finished my paper towel holder. P1120553     I did a lot today I drilled holes in the main piece of plastic. I cut out two other pieces of plastic, drilled them, and cut them into a plus shape. Then I bent each end and attached them to the holes in the main piece of plastic with some nuts and bolts. It was overall not too hard, just tedious. However tedious things wear me down a lot and it felt like it was taking forever. I like how practical these things are and my paper towel holder is probably going to be hung in the garage.

P1120099     If they don’t look that similar that’s because I still have to move it myself. And this was my first time using it. This project was actually pretty straight forward and I didn’t have much trouble with it.
