Waxed paper roll to fit in container

Dispenser keeps waxed paper handy

It seemed like whenever I needed waxed paper to protect my bench from glue squeeze-out, the waxed paper was buried in a drawer. I either had to dig it out with messy hands or stop and clean up before I went for it.

To put waxed paper within easy reach, I built a wooden box, just big enough to hold the waxed paper in its original box. To keep the roll from jumping out, I drilled a 1 1/16" hole in each end, cut matching holes in both ends of the waxed paper box, and slid a 1" dowel rod through the whole works. In each end of the dowel, I drilled a hole and slipped a hairpin cotter pin through it to keep the dowel in place. With the box screwed to the wall, I never have to hunt for waxed paper.

If this made larger in all three dimensions, you can also use it for a roll of rosin paper. Very handy to cover your workbench top if you are gluing.

Great idea and if you fasten an old hacksaw or planer blade to the front it makes for easy tear off the length you need.

Can you buy waxed paper that is 24" or 30" wide? All i see is 14" stuff that you can buy at a grocery store.
