Knex Napkin Holder

Introduction: Knex Napkin Holder

About: U.B. Electrical Engineering. I enjoy building with Knex and I have been using this site for a few years now. So, subscribe if you like what I do.

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
