I made this out of scrap from my outdoor dining table so it would match. I started with just the box but realized that it needed something to keep the napkins from blowing away. I tried using a rock but that was cheesy so I made a flapper out of more scrap cedar. My rudimentary wood hinge functions ok using a couple wire nails as hinge pins. The handle is a chunk of cedar that I cut to be approximately round on the band saw and sanded to a semi smooth finish. The finish is tung oil.
