Napkin holders and trays for everyone. First pic is Eastern maple and cherry. Third pic is figured maple and cherry, walnut, paduk, purpleheart and mahogany.

And learned about compound angles and planing figured maple is tough without chunking it out.

Simple, yet effective and useful! I like these. Nice job and great use of scrap!

That is a cool napkin holder. Usually they are upright, not flat. Unique. Very nice trays too.

Thanks everyone for the comments.

I got 3/16” rod at Rona (your Lowes/HD) and just cut with a dremel. Then spun them in the drill press and cleaned it up with 400 grit. The legs are from LV which I also spun and cleaned up in the drill press.


Very nice. Where did you locate the metalwork?
