Very nice; I like it. I bought a Porter-Cable dovetail jig on a good sale a while back, something like this might be a good project to finally try it out.

That makes a lovely gift for your niece and she will cherish it always because it was made by your hands out of love for her. Nice work.

Just goes to show… there really is no such thing as a “scrap” of QSWO. :-)

ScottM – Thanks. It’s approximately 6” high, 5.5” wide and the space between the sides that hold the napkins up is 2”. Size it to fit the napkins you use.
