Free Project - Handy Napkin Holder

Post by Stephanie Downing »

Another fantastic free project courtesy of Michael Tyler.

Here’s a new and unique accessory for your dining tabletop - the “Handy” Napkin Holder! (Sorry about the pun!)

This project features a pair of hands clasping a slice of bread on both sides of the holder, while keeping a stack of napkins “sandwiched” between the slices. The hand models were created in Aspire for a previous Vectric project called “The Reader Magazine Rack”. (The hands are my own - I used a photo of them as a guide when making the models in Aspire.)

I borrowed those hand models from that project, created a slice of bread model and combined them together in Aspire. I then exported the composite model as a STL file and imported it into VCarve to layout the napkin holder project.

Probably due to excessive amounts of caffeine.

Great project! The wife has already "placed her order".
Me, I am wondering if I can upsize it into a bike rack - LOL
Looking forward to making this one.
Thank you Michael and Vectric!

Michael,
Thank you, so kind of you to say.
Hopefully someday I will get to meet you and many of the contributors here in person.
I am disappointed that there won't be an Aspire camp this year, but I am looking forward to Denver!
