Every now and then, I just have to follow some one elses instructions and plans. While thier way of doing things is probably most correct, I can always find, immeadiately the things , I felt they ommitted in writing the steps of the project. For instance , they should have stated in the first paragraph. If you are not proficient in glue ups and have completed at least class #109 in glue ups, do not attempt this project-LOL. It was a real pain in the posterior end, trying to keep everything square and clamped during this glue up for me. The article was from one of the wood magazines I recieve. The woods were some Lyptus and White Oak that I had laying around in the shop. I made patterns for all the pieces during the build out of 1/4” baltic birch plywood so that I can easily reproduce in mass each piece again in the future, when needed. I doubt that those patterns will ever be used again-LOL. The finsh is an old stand by, 1/3MS,1/3Tung Oil,1/3Poly. It does however precisely and dutifully hold napkins.
