Nautical Napkin Holder – A boating friend asked if I could come up with a holder that would keep the napkins from flying around in the wind while he is boating. I wanted something simple, but with a “nautical” stamp on it. The hold-down arm features a carved maple anchor and is heavy enough to hold the napkins in place. The box is made from African Cherry; a wood that should hold up to the rigors of boating. I finished everything in outdoor poly.

Now that’s the difference between you and me….I would have told him to stop eating with napkins when it’s windy.

Your design lends itself nicely to picnic tables & other outdoor events – I can see this become an oft-requested item.

Nice design and build. I see the arm is up in the second pic—is the hinge sprung, or just tight?
