Ran across a video on YouTube showing a guy making this Napkin Holder using his router table and an 8 sided Bird Mouth router bit. It looked interesting, so I ordered a bit and gave it a try.
I have to say, this one is not absolutely perfect, but for my first attempt I am quite pleased. I took some 3/4” Walnut, Pecan and Cherry stock, cut it in half and milled it down to 3/8”. Ran it through the router and applied 2 coats of Shellac and then two coats of Wipe on Poly. Bird Mouth joinery is glues up really nice
Here is a link to David Henry's video in case you are interested. The process is really interesting and fun to do – although precision is important.
