I just couldn’t help myself and if I copied somebody elses pattern, my apologies.
I had some oak and walnut that was in the way, so instead of tossing it I glued it. They are just under 4” square so as to keep waste to a minimum while making the carriers.
I used a forstner bit to open the front and then bandsaw to remove the excess. I did finish the boxes prior to assembly and then a quick sanding with 400 grit and several more coats of finish.

I like them. They look nice. Like the others said nice use of scrap wood. What size of thickness are they.

On the subject of coasters. Since i’m not in business nor want to be. I don’t have business cards. But i take about a 4” red cedar log cut it about 1/2” thick. Sand and magic marker name and number on the bottom, poly the top. I only give to people who stop in my shop and want my number. A card that people want to keep.

I made them 1/2” thick. Any thicker looked too ‘massive’
kinda neat – I re-sawed 3/4” stock on the table saw to about 9/16” and that left me with up to 1/4” stock to use for drawer bottoms or little pencil boxes – a ton of things can be made out of the ‘left overs’ : )
