This project was created by taking oak and cherry and cutting it into 3/4” strips. Then I glued them back together and cut out oval and the holes for the glasses. With the cut outs, I placed them into a home made jam chuck and turned a recess to allow for the glasses to sit down in the coasters. I turned the handle out of solid cherry and used oak dowels for the supports. I finished the entire project with two coats of my home made mixture and then finished with 2 coats of spray polyurethane. This makes a perfect carrier for taking drinks out to the deck and giving each guest a coaster to set their favorite beverage on. This is the very first contest I’ve ever entered and had a great time building the project (about 12 hours worth). Thanks to Lumberjocks and the sponsors for provided me this challenge and fun time.

Looks great and an awesome idea, I have never seen one of these. Also, it looks like you made this for the contest, but it is not showing up on the actual contest page, don’t forget to submit it or you will not be entered for all the great prizes. Good Luck!
