This I made for the wife. She was looking at one of my magazines and said “can you make me one of these” so there it is. I learned a lot of what not to do.

It works great. What I learned is not to do is cut all the notches (the napkins sit on) on the band saw. I made it work but because they are all I little different they sit differently on the two pieces that they rest on. It was really bad on the two end pieces with the towers, they ended up being tilted and not in aligned with each other. I re-did those using a dado blade on my table saw while they were still in square block format. That is what I should have done with all of them. Then I could have cut the pattern out on the band saw. Oh well, that’s how you learn…..

Your first shot at it turned out better than my “prototype”.

it looks good, but can you put some napkins in there so we can see how it works?
