Both of my Sons and their families are coming over for Easter Sunday dinner. We will be giving the grandchildren Easter gifts and we wanted to give the Sons and their Wives a little something also. I made these Napkin Holders for them. They are Walnut, Maple and Oak. I used the Bird Mouth Joinery method shown in the below video from David Henry.

I made some just like that 3 years ago but without the sides. Nice work.

I like these a lot Bill. If I hadn’t recently made one, I would be copying this. Nice wood combo. Did you cut a piece to fit in the bottom?

Great projects. Sorry I missed the party but see it received a well deserved DT3. Congratulations.
