Actually, it's not badly made. I did all the cutting and shaping and M did all the joining and putting up. I was still getting back into the hang of using my jigsaw so there are certainly uneven bits in some of the curves though you can't see those from this picture. And the point of making this towel rail was indeed that it is large. We found that you just can't buy large towel rails. What do people hang their bath towels on? Old ones, I suppose. Or maybe they all buy those radiator-types. But for our bathroom we just wanted a straightforward wooden towel rail, and here it is.
