I can't think of any time that napkins rings would not be welcome at formal occasions or even whenever you were using cloth napkins. Whether single or multiple woods, these round holders will turn out beautiful.
If you make napkin holders, be careful as you'll soon be asked for more!!
|Twisted Napkin Rings and Tea Light Holders |
By: Andy Kuby
This is a quick project with the “you TURNED that?” factor which is based upon information from Barbara Dill and others. Create a coordinated table setting with napkins rings and tea light holders turned from the same timber.
By: Al Hockenbery
In this project, you'll find Al's demonstration notes which explain how to make triangles. He explains how to use this technique to make napkin rings but shows that this technique can be used for many other types of turnings too.
Al also shows how to make 2-sided turnings.
These are very nice napkin rings and great for anyone's home.
|Turn your own Napkin Rings and Stand |
By: Paul Ross
These napkin rings and stand make an attractive table piece. They also fit nicely together for easy storage when not in use.
Depending on the look you want, you can do the entire set out of one type of wood, or use two contrasting woods. I chose to use walnut for the rings and stem, and boxwood (from France) for the stem's cap.
This is a relatively easy project requiring mostly spindle work, with some faceplate work for the base.
