Mechanical solutions do not come easy to me, but I needed a way to keep my heavy recycled kraft paper available and easy to unroll. I “visioned” a solution – a clay flower pot turned upside down, a wooden dowel that would fit thru both the roll and the pot hole, and three round furniture slider discs between the roll and the pot to keep it turning smoothly. The sucker works! And the extra dowel space above the roll give me a place to hang scissors and tape. Now off to the patent office . . .
