A Napkin Holder for My Special Lady

A beautiful napkin holder made from live edge birdseye maple.

Back in November, Nicole asked me to make her a new napkin holder. Her only request was that it be a horizontal model that doesn’t let all the napkins come out when you’re just trying to take one. While the project itself isn’t anything crazy, the wood was quite special. I’ve been carrying around a single birdseye maple board for about a decade knowing that one day I’d use it to make something special. And it’s hard to think of anything more special than a gift for the love of my life. So I went into the shop and made this little napkin holder. I hope you enjoy watching it come together.
