I like them.

Probably a dumb question, but were the designs already on the wood, or did you make the designs too? Meaning, did you source the wood from something else, or start from scratch?

Add a bottle opener to the back of one, and they'll be perfect.

All from scratch, just drew the template on the wood and started with the router .... And the bottle opener, is an AWESOME IDEA!!

I like them. Easy to store. Could you give the measurements? I don't want to end up storing large amounts of furniture in the off season. These seem perfect for when guests stop by. I would think with no pattern easy $25. Well sealed of course. dorf dude...
