Looks like a good solution. If it was easy, can you tell me where you got those holders?
Hardware store. The two pieces are black plastic PVC drain pipe flanges in the plumbing department. Depending on how far back in the console you want to place them, you may have to trim the bottoms of the rear one with a Dremel or razor saw to fit the console opening, but it will not affect the capacity of the holder. Epoxy the flanges to a piece of plexiglass that is cut to fit the console as a base. I added some wood trim to the rims, but that's optional. They will hold everything from a water bottle, travel coffee cup or a "Big Gulp" without tipping. The nice thing about them is that with they will also hold cell phones, gas receipts, etc. if you're not thirsty and aren't permanently stuck in the car.
