I needed a napkin holder so I grabbed a piece of 5/4 walnut and some scrap 1/2” maple and dovetailed them into the base. Finished with spray lacquer.

Nice small project without having to use a bunch of wood. The dovetail is a very nice touch!

Nice job. This is could be a great way to get some dovetail time without actually doing drawers, etc. Very novel use of the joint! Thanks for the inspiration!

Great project. Nice use of the dovetails. Not sure I would want to “practice” on something like this. I am sure my first would be to ugly to land on the table. haha

Keep up the imaginative work.
