A little project after completing a DVD/BD hutch. The napkin holder is cherry and purple heart. Finish is one coat of shellac and three coats of tung oil.

(I’ll post picture of the hutch after I deliver it to my son, it’s been too snowy and now rainy to load into my pickup)

Good design, and hope you don’t mind if I borrow the concept.

I too like the idea. I wil be adapting it with a larger top to cover more of the napkin as well as some sort of handle on top. That way it can be taken from the camper to the picnic table and hold napkins in place on a windy day. Thank you for the post.

Thanks for the comments. Go ahead and use my concept, I can’t really claim it be to totally mine. It’s a combination of other napkin holders I’ve seen on this site.
