This is a very simple project to make. I gave out 12 of them one year at Christmas for gifts. It 1/2” plywood backing,
ceramic tile, with different center tiles, from the box store and some oak trim made in my shop. I completed this project in 2002, and I am always proud to see them setting on their counters and tables when we visit them.

Those are nice looking and a great gift idea.

I saw a project very similar to this in a book once, for trivets or coasters. Was planning on making some in quantity for gifts this year. They look great, may have to hit you up for advice later :)
