    Portable one hand paper towel dispenser

    My wife asked me to make a portable paper towel holder for our camper that she could also take out to the picnic table. A plain old paper towel dispenser is kinda boring so I added a feature to be able to tear off one sheet at a time using only one hand. Not a big deal but some may find it an easy to make useful woodworking project.

    Ken, I am not sure what side of the bed you get out of, but it is defiantly, the right side for you. Nice job, once again.

    Very clever--almost as clever as your thing-a-ma-jig gearslanger.
