  • Napkin Holder

    These are a Sheila Landry pattern. I used painted veneer for a backer. Wife said she liked the towel holder without a backer. If she is happy I am happy. LOL

      Nice work, Trackman. I liked the backer better too. But then, as my wife often reminds me, I know virtually nothing about the tastes of women. But I do know a good piece of workmanship when I see it, and this is good workmanship.

        I agree w/ wife. I like the one w/o the backer . . . . it looks bigger!
        Either way, nice cut!!

          Very nice.

          I liked it so much I just ordered the pattern.

          Curious, did you stack cut the 2 sides of the napkin holder?. I will have to look at the veneer option.

            Yes the napkin holder was stacked cut out of 3/8" each. The towel holder is 1/2" to give it more weight. The veneer idea is from Sheila Landry.

                  Very nice! I just may have to purchase patterns from Sheila so I can add these to my inventory for the fall shows!

                      If it's for the house, not only wood, but that "essential" new tool!

                        Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry

                        Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
                        HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...

                        My kids always call me since I am the one who probably did the stuff they are calling about.

                        I know it's scary to get that call, but I'm glad to hear the charge exited where it did before it went any further.

                        Probably hurts like hell and he has a copper taste in his mouth...
