Drink for Thought

Inspired to create an aesthetically pleasing, functional gift for his son's new—and small—apartment, Allen C. Doolittle came up with a compact cube that could be disassembled into eight separate coasters. Turn your barren coffee table into a brain teaser with this imaginative puzzle-like design. Carved from walnut and maple, the pieces are crafted to strategically fit together—a fun way to figure out whether or not you need that second cup of joe. Handmade in Nashville, Tennessee.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

With a day job specializing in data warehouse projects in Nashville, Tennessee, you probably wouldn’t expect Software Architect Allen Doolittle to have a knack for woodworking. Having dabbled in cabinetry at a young age, he’s understood the basics of the craft for many years. Since then, he’s developed a true love for hardwood, oak, and walnut, and his desire to create functional and aesthetically interesting pieces for his kids became a passion that now has him spending his spare time designing and building in the woodshed. “First a maple crib,” he recalls, “then a doll crib, then some Unusual Thinking Blocks, and away you go.”
