    The biggest problem with this is that it wouldn't work as a coaster very well. Coasters are supposed to keep the water condensation off of your wooden tables, this project has huge gaping holes that water can easily go through.

    Such a simple idea, but I really like it. I have many cans and bottles of extra hardware, so I might do this! :D
