Two sets of napkin rings that I made from scrap wood. I used a hole saw with two nested cutters in my drill press to cut these out from a piece of oak that I found along the road and some cut-offs of my ‘wedgewood’.
Once the rings were cut, I sanded the outside edges with my mounted belt sander and the insides I sanded by hand. Then I used the belt sander to put bevels in the rings, sort of like teeth. It adds some dimension to them.
I finished these with a few coats of boiled linseed oil followed by a coat of bees wax which I rubbed in by hand.
I like the oak ones more than the pine, but the pine ones do have a slightly interesting feature with the changing grain pattern.
