To make this, I started by cutting a log to size and sanded away any rough bits.
I then drilled some holes in the top (which were about the depth of half a pen) and gave it two coats of wood varnish.
To finish off, I cut and glued a piece of felt to the bottom to make sure it didn't scratch the furniture!
And that's it.... I told you it was a quick project!!
This is now sitting on my Dad's desk at home, along with the coasters. I wonder if there any other wood related presents I could make him..... any ideas?!
