Whilst cutting parts for my next project this weekend I put together my version of off-cut coasters on the side. Was super fun to make. Think I need to make more of these.

Lotsa different kinds of woods. Mahogany and Maple cradles. Finished with Tung oil and Shellac.

Thanks for looking.

Really cool. How did you assemble the holders? Are the corner pieces just glued on?

Thanks to all for the nice comments.

@jim65; I would be delighted to see your version of these. Thank you for the compliment.

@Andrew; Yes the corners for the cradles are glued on. They are remarkebly sturdy although I can see that this would be a weak structural point.

Well it’s not like they are holding any weight. If they feel sturdy, that’s good enough
I think I’ll try it myself. I have been looking for a nice simple design for a coaster holder.

Great idea. I already have a box of scraps. Hate to throw any good wood away. Now I have something to do with the off-cuts. Terrific stuff and congrats on a great idea.
