Hi it's Knextremist again with a very simple instructable. It's a napkin holder! I built it about six months ago. It holds a significant amount of napkins without using too many pieces. I guess i'll do a parts list. (I may be a piece or two off.)

Parts List





Total: 325 pieces

Alright let's get started!

Step 1: The Base
