Any type of wood or plywood.
Sides are 5.5" x 5.5" x .75"
Bottom piece that connects side is 2.25" x 5.5" x .75"
Optional - additional wood for decorative inlay
Saw, table or miter
Router with small roundover bit
Pretty easy, straight-forward project. Yes, you could do this without a shaper origin, but its much easier and cleaner with one.
Cut wood or plywood to the dimensions
Drill dowel holes using shaper origin.
Spice up the faces of the napkin holder with an inlay. I used the letter "P" on a couple because they were family gifts, but use your imagination. Also, more use for your Shaper Origin!!
I like to sand, router edges before assembly
Assemble - glue in dowels to holes on bottom piece, apply glue to sides of bottom piece and attach the sides, add clamps
Optional - I like to cut an additional 2.25" block for the top to clamp temporarily to hold shape, so it stays square.
obviously do not glue that top block
Wipe off or sand away any glue squeeze out.
Finish using whatever you like. A food safe finish might not be a bad idea
