Napkin holder for Mom

My mom asked me to make a napkin holder in the style of my Kumiko lantern. This is what I came up with.

(Edited to add a “professional” photo :wink: )

Edit #2: Okay, okay, at the urging of my Hubs and FB, the design is for sale: https://www.etsy.com/listing/769001361/yoshiko-napkin-holder-svg-vector-pattern

Ohhhhh…i do like that! (And I need to replace the one I’m using now - it has to be refilled too frequently.) :grinning:

That’s gorgeous

Now I’m thinking of all the other things you could do for the table: lazy susan, salt/pepper shaker holders, trivets/trivet holder…the list is never ending!

Gorgeous! My youtube stream now has a bunch of Kumiko videos showing up on it, thanks to your previous posts.

You’ve really hit your stride with this style! All the little touches combine into something so elegant…

Thanks! :slight_smile: I think I’ve gone a little overboard with the kerf tightness, though…I couldn’t get one of the panels to go all the way in, and finally noticed I’d gotten a hair caught in the joint. Maybe I should loosen up a little! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Totally stunning work. :heart_eyes: All that design together in the same table … inlaid place settings, Coasters, salt &pepper holder, napkin holder, Engraved silverware handles, candelabra, chandelier … :heart_eyes: :heart_eyes: :heart_eyes:

Very nice. So much prettier than my napkin holder which looks an awful lot like a paper towel holder.

Truly lovely. I mean the Kumiko design itself is so beautiful, but the design of your box is amazing, as well. Fantastic combination.

it’s one of the negatives to having darker hair. you have to account for more kerf than if you were a blond.

Wow. As I said, STUNNING!

And the slight curve and ‘flare out’ on the corners… adds so much. Truly inspiring.
