This purpleheart/curly oak napkin holder has a turned dowel that rides in routed slots to keep the napkins from blowing away. The purpleheart sides are mortised into the base. Finished with catalyzed lacquer

Does the hold-down also act as a handle on this piece ?
Do either of the side pieces remove for ease of use while filling or removing the napkins ?
Did you turn the hold-down ?
