To reduce the risk of injury user must read instruction manuals for all tools used in this project. Wear eye and respiratory protection. Use clamps to support work piece whenever practical.

STEP 1

Begin by cutting the wood with the Dremel Ultra-Saw to create the front and sides of the dispenser to the desired size. Then, using the Dremel Micro and cutting bit, drill pilot holes into the wood in all four corners of the front piece.

STEP 2

Attach the metal bar mounts to the side pieces with the drill.

STEP 3

Step 3

Assemble the front and sides by drilling screws into the four corners of the front-facing piece of wood.

STEP 4

Secure the hacksaw blade to the side of the front-facing piece of wood that will face outward, so it will cleanly slice the tape off the dispenser.

STEP 5

STEP 6

Step 6

Using the Dremel Micro again, drill two pilot holes in the center of both of the shorter sides of the diamond plate, about an inch apart. Then, continuing to use the Micro, drill holes into the four corners, and next to the holes created for the mounting bars.

STEP 7
