Great looking set of cigar trays—I really like that walnut one with the maple splines!

Could a ceramic tile be used for the base? If I ever build one of these, the tile should be easy to get.

Nice work, currently working on a cigar ashtray using a harmonic balancer from a Chevy with a wooden base.

Too nice to even dip a Cohiba into!

Those splines look nice and crisp, fine work!
