This year my wife and I were determined to not ruin Christmas with meaningless gifting from store bought garbage. So we designed and built these coaster sets that we gave to all of our close friends and family. They are made from walnut and cherry. The slotted storage base is layered walnut and cherry to give a complimenting look. The finish is multiple polyurethane coats for durability. Each coaster has cork that sits in a recessed circle so as to be flush. We made this a family affair – the boys helped with the sanding and finishing. My wife cut all the cork circles.
