Dyed Leather Coasters with Holder

With the extra time I’ve found on my hands, I was finally able to combine a number of ideas that I’ve had for a while. Behold the leather coasters, painted (with dye), oiled, beaded, and mounted to cork. To complete the project, I designed a simple holder (easily engraved, though i did not engrave my prototype) that is the perfect size to hold not only these, but coasters made from bathroom tiles. I’m pretty pleased with the result, and utterly amazed that my first attempt at a simple box went as well as it did. I guess that there is merit to measuring 23 times before cutting!
