Sometimes all you need is a simple object. I needed a coaster and trivet in one for some hot pans and bowls of food that added something to the table setting as well, besides being functional. Within 5 minutes I was done cutting a circle out of a left over piece of leather and I’m really happy with the result: no fuss, no details. Just a simple functional object serving its purpose.
How to make your own? Normally I give instructions, but this really is a no-brainer DIY so all I an say is: get some leather and start cutting!
