Napkin holder base made of oak with inserts cut on the scrollsaw out of fir. The inserts are just pressure fit into dadoes, no glue. I plan to make other inserts for other seasons. A sunrise cross for Easter, a flag for July 4, a Nativity for Christmas, etc.

Update Sep. 2013 – I finally made another set of inserts – a Texas Aggie insert for fall football season!

Update March 2014 – added a Christmas Candy Cane insert set.

Update May 2014 – added a spring flower insert set.

Update July 2017 – finally made the Independence Day Patriotic inserts.

Very pretty napkin holder! Great idea on the inserts and a great gift idea on any occasion as well.

Good Job, I like the idea of being able to adjust the holder to the holiday. I may be particularly dense today but what are the two metal posts for?

@JesseTutt – the “metal posts” are stainless steel salt and pepper grinders. :)
@Roger – I don’t remember where we got them, had them for years.

Great idea of making one stand and interchangeable seasons. After awhile it gets kind of daunting trying to find a place to store all that holiday stuff.

I really like this idea! It would be fun to change out for every season.
