Storing Rolls of Paper in the Shop
By: Joe Truini
Rolls of brown paper come in handy in the workshop, but it can be hard to find a convenient place to store and cut them. One solution is to screw two metal hooks horizontally to the wall of the shop far enough apart so the paper fits between them.
Next, cut a wooden dowel slightly longer than the distance between the hooks, and slide the roll of paper on it.
Hang the dowel on the hooks, and screw a 1” x 4” board into the studs about 14” below the paper.
To use, simply pull the paper down and cut it to length with a utility knife.
You can hang other items as well, such as paper towels or rolls of tape.
