You know, I was trying to think of a way to add a bit of space between my electronics so they get better air flow and not heat up quite as fast. This will work perfectly! Thanks for the idea. :) Also, I think a bit of scrap felt on top of the coaster would get the drips that run down the side of a glass. Just a thought.
