DIY Wooden Towel Ring


So, I saw a towel ring on AllModern and I freaking loved it.  I instantly thought, hey that would be an easy DIY.  I think this is my first "knock off" DIY.  When I saw that price tag, I was like No way, the DIY was just too easy and would be so inexpensive to make and I could not resist making my own version.  


It took 5 minutes to make, I am not even kidding, it even surprised me how ridiculously easy it was.  However, you do need the 3 power tools to complete it.  The first is some kind of saw to cut down the wooden dowel, BUT you can ask the home improvement store to cut a couple for you.  Mine does all the time, it may be because they see me nearly everyday, but they do not mind.  The rest are in the steps below!



Materials:
Wooden Dowel- Diameter 1 3/8 inch
Gold Metal Ring
Dremel Tool
Drill with 5/32 Drill bit
Dowel Screw  #14

Cut a piece of the wooden dowel to 1.5 inches.

Snip a cut into the gold metal ring using a dremel tool (or any tool that can cut metal).

my husband's hand, not that there is a problem having dude hands, but want it to be clear they are not mine

Drill a hole with the 5/32 drill bit into the dowel in this location:



Insert your metal ring through the hole.  (the cut on the metal ring is so small, there is no need to reconnect it) Drill a hole into the back of the wooden dowel.



Insert the dowel screw and get it into your wall!  (using a pliers helps to get that dowel screw in) 



We are using it in our bathroom above our bathtub and I plan to make more.  It was so easy to make and I now have a long wooden dowel, which was the largest expense at $6 (?) so I can make so many more... Would look so good in a kitchen!
