This is not worthy of being called a project. Doing some fooling around with some scrap, I made a pair of similar napkin rings. One is 3/4 inch oak and the other is about 5/8 in ‘wedge’ wood pine.

I cut these out using a hole saw with two rings installed on one arbor. Then I Sanded the faces and edges on a belt sander, creating bevels with the belt sander as well. Then I hand sanded and dunked them in boiled linseed oil. After that, I applied wax to them from a candle that contains a good deal of bees wax and rubbed it in and wiped the excess off with a scrap of blue jeans denim.

I’d say that qualifys as a woodworking project. It has all the necessary components: wood, cutting / shaping, sanding, finishing.

Yes, but a set of 4 or 8 would be more appropriate.

Quite nicely done! I particularly like the one which appears to be heart shaped. I did a dozen of pecan and satin polyurethane several years ago; and we use then regularly, as we use cloth napkins exclusively at all meals..
