This is a coaster rack I started in Arizona but could not figure how I could stack the four coasters on it and have them stay in place. So I cut a back leaning angle on it and drilled 2 holes real close to the edge and then made some offset brass rods to go in the holes but spread outside the contour so the coasters will sit between them. I can’t try it out because the coasters, which look exactly like the grain in this log, are back in Arizona. I sliced the log into 1/2” slices and then kept the end for the holder.
The knot hole and other voids are filled with epoxy with turquoise dust mixed in. It is made from male pistachio and finished with clear lacquer.
Here are the coasters for this holder: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/568931365399182187/
