We use small Dixie cups in the washroom but I found small cups when browsing the mall one day. I decided to make an Oak cup holder that we could mount beside our mirror.

This project went very quickly. I started off wanting to use a 1/2″ piece of oak I had left over from a project a long time ago, but I wasn’t sure how I wanted to mount it. I had a small 1 1/2″ thick off cut from the entertainment unit that would work though, and it would allow me to use some extra floating shelf supports. I drilled in 4 3″ holes, and sanded using my oscillating spindle sander. That saved a lot of time drilling the round holes.

I rounded over the edges and put a small chamfer on the 3″ holes to let water drip down if they ever got wet.

I drilled the blind shelf support holes, sanded, and applied finish by hand. I love my sprayer to apply the finish, but didn’t want to take it out for such a small project. I kind of regret it though because it is so much better!

Overall, I am very happy with this quick and easy project!
