It’s Saturday, and that means it’s time for another scrap wood project! With the holidays coming up shortly, there will be a lot of gathering around the table with food. Eating food leads to messes, so I decided to whip up (pun intended) a simple DIY napkin holder for today’s project. Here is what you will need to complete this project.

Supplies

Scrap Wood – I used a scrap 1 x 6 cut into three pieces. 6″ 3″ 4″

Clamps

Wood Glue

Paint, Stain, or Poly of Choice

Applicator Brush

Tape Measure and Pencil or Pen

Tools

Saw to cut scrap wood – I used my Circular Saw

Sander

Let’s Build This!

The first step was to cut the wood to the length I needed. I used a 1 x 6Β  cut into three sections ( 6″, 3″, 4″).

Using my circular saw, I cut the board to the lengths I needed for the DIY napkin holder.

The boards need to be sanded beforeΒ assembling. There will be tight spaces once the boards are attached together and it would be difficult to use a power sander.

To attach the boards together, I am using wood glue and some clamps. If you let the wood glue set up for the appropriate time, this should be plenty strong enough. I applied wood glue to the points where the front and back board meet the middle board and clamped them up.

Once the wood glue was dry (the product you use should have drying times stated on the packaging), it was time to give this DIY napkin holder a finish. I chose to use a polyurethane in satin on this project. I really like the color of the natural wood against the finish of the table.

I used a brush on this project to apply the polyurethane and a rag to wipe off the excess.

There you have it, a simple scrap wood project that will come in very handy for the family gatherings right around the corner. Fall just has so much to offer!
