Napkin ring set

I made this napkin ring set a couple of years ago. It’s kind of a puzzle since each napkin ring has it’s own place in the holder, hence I numbered the pieces. The only catch is that I numbered them with Chinese characters :-) ( I did put a conversion chart on the back). This piece is made of maple (core) walnut (outer sandwich pieces) and cherry (laminate). The box measures 14” X 7” X 1 1/2”.

I’ve been asked in previous postings if they could copy my work. My feeling is that there are very few “unique” ideas out there and that all my ideas were inspired by something that I’ve seen. So I encourage you to use my interpretations. The only thing that I ask is that if you copy them verbatim, please do so for non-profit purposes since many of these pieces are for sale in the marketplace.

Thanks for viewing,

I really like a number of clever things you did here. I really need to try out one of these semi-bent laminations some time, you can really create neat patterns and draw with the wood. Well done.
