Coasters in a Box

A simple way of keeping those coasters inside a box. The first question was will the hexagon shaped coaster will fit with ease inside a square box. To my surprise it did and it has given me an advantage in picking up those that are inside. The space in the corners will allow your finger to get in and pick up the coasters.

Another EZ miter box (Martyn the Britboxmaker) made from

Cover … Narra and a cross 4 stripes arrangement.
Inside side… Kamagong (ebony) .... 1/8 thick (good lumber to be that strong)
Base – Narra
5 Stripes – varied but one of them is ebony.
Coasters—Left over from my tumbling block projects.

Size: 4-1/2×4-1/2×3-3/4 inches. Small and a bit to tight to work at.

I hope this will just remind you of a beer in cans that goes with it. Enjoy the weekend with a good coffee and you just imagine these coasters to be joining you. There are seven… just enough..

Have a nice day. Thanks for viewing.

-- Bert

Wow, Bert! Those are really beautiful! What a great use of pieces. I wouldn’t want to put anything on them though! :)

Those are nice. I’d want to put coasters on the coasters to not ruin the coasters.

I love the color contrast in our coasters; really brought out the 3D effect. Well done, Bert.

An organized RANDOM design. .... Shall we say…. TRAPEZOID AND RECTANGLES..

At present it looks like a mousepad.

Any suggestion will do…
