This was made for our park model trailer in Arizona It holds the salt,pepper, sugar and napkins in one place on the table. I hope my wife wants to keep it. I had it started in Az and finished it up today. It is made from a piece of scrap mesquite. I just had enough from the one piece to make it.
The napkin holder blades are doweled and screwed in place.The front of the base is a natural edge. All the pieces have some sap wood but no bugs!
I did not have a 3 1/16” Forstner bit so the base spent a little time on the lathe to bore that center pocket. I plugged all the holes with mesquite dowels,
It is finished with Danish oil and clear satin lacquer.
