foil/saran wrap dispenser

oldcraftyJuly 26, 2010

I am wanting to build a foil and saran wrap cabinet to dispense commercial size rolls. I have kitchen cabinet doors from my mom's kitchen that I want to use, for sentimental reasons. And I plan to mosaic the top board. Just having a problem figureing out the inside working parts. I know it has to be cabinet style b/c I will probably have to use saw plates, or if anyone has a different suggetion for a cutting edge, and I need to keep little hands of the grandkids safe. Not to mention keep the foil etc. clean as I don't want to keep it in the box it is sold in. Has anyone ever seen any plans for such a cabinet or have any helpful suggestions?

I made a set of these for a friend 20 or so years ago.

For the roll holder, I bought toilet paper roll holders, removed the end without the spring and substituted a dowel of the right diameter. This left a spring-fit rod.

For the hinging, I put the door in position and drilled in from the outside where I inserted 1/8" brass rods that got super-glued to the door part. Once the glue had set, it's easy to trim and sand the brass rod flush with the outside of the unit.

Likewise, I think I simply screwed on hacksaw blades to the underside of the doors.
