Glass Coasters

Set of Four Glass Coasters in Stand

Such a great product that once I'd seen them I had to find out where to source them

These elegant black coasters are designed to take photos, but they have a slot about 2mm deep which means they are ideal for marquetry, cross-stitch, embroidery, calligraphy, painting, pyrography and many more crafts. Alternatively, ask me for inserts of a veneer to match or contrast your dining table.

 

Glass Coaster showing insert

The coasters take an insert approx. 80x70 mm
The visible area is 63x63mm.

£12.50 ... initially please send a message via Contact Us

Coaster sets with real marquetry start from £30 ... please Enquire


The Ernie Ives craft knife.

Ernie Ives Craft Knife

This great little knife is our preferred tool for marquetry. It takes standard size 11 scalpel blades, but can be adjusted so that just the tip is exposed, reducing "waggle" and blade breakage. Supplied with five blades.
