There were some quick stocking stuffers I made for Christmas 2009. I marked off a barrel stave so that I had square pieces that measured 2 1/2 to 3 in. square. They are big for napkin rings but my wife says she likes the “chunkey” look and they work well with large napkins. I cut a 1 1/2 in. hole in the center of each piece with a hole saw and then cut up the stave into individual pieces. I routered and sanded the edges and corners. I made some smaller pieces with 1 1/4 in. holes, but you need pretty thin napkins for those. The last photo shows some rings made with the ends of the barrel staves. The unique pointed ends give them a special look. These are smaller pieces and have 1 1/4 in. holes. These end pieces can also serve as place card holders with a slot that is cut in the ends to hold the barrel head. I finished with a few coats of outdoor polyurethane so that they can be hand washed.
