Pretty cheap, too.
Gonna need a good sized bit to bore out the hole for the soap dispenser, though.

Making the hole may not be as difficult as you think. A 1" hole saw would be close to the right size and isn't very expensive if one doesn't already have one (I actually have one but then, I'm a tool addict, I don't need much of an excuse to buy a tool; tools are right up there with chocolate). It would probably have to be hogged out a hair with a mill bastard rattail file (the hole in the photo appears to have had that done; note the burr on the bottom). I measure the ceramic soap dispenser I have in my bathroom and it was a hair over 1".

You have better eyes than I do. I just blew it up 600% and still couldn't read it.

I thought I gave credit where credit was due, acknowledging Ladyfitz's initial assessment...
And I'd like to point out, "yellowreef", that I agreed with her before you did...

Mount with wall side pointing down and bottle will hide most of bracket. In fact some bench grinder time could make it almost invisable. GREAT idea.

Mounting the bracket upside down is also a great idea. I'm not so sure taking a grinder to it would be such a good idea since that could weaken it unless one limited the grinding to only smoothing out the corners. Painting it would help prevent rust. Dipping in a vinyl compound like Plastic Dip would be more durable than paint although color selection would be limited.

That bracket is a really good idea. I'm gonna look into making one for dish soap. I usually use Lava for washing my hands, but it would work great for a squirt onto a sponge to wash the dishes. I have a couple holes in the wood by the sink that need filling. Now where did I put that ToDo list?

I would prefer something like this:

HD and Lowe's has various sizes of angle aluminum. No rust, easy to cut and work with. Pics to follow.

I thrive on working with metal. I turned my family room into a machine shop.

I like the ready made dispensers, just not they will hold up to the outside environment. I just need the one bottle of hand soap in the plumbing bay to wash up after dumping tanks etc.... I have the other style for the shower.

It sure looks like a wall mount bracket for a cheese straightner. I have a number of them. I usually use the under counter mount. I hate crooked cheese. You need a different straightner for each type of cheese. Wal-Mart has them.
