In honor of this pallet bandwagon that I seem to have inadvertently jumped onto, I made a set of coasters out of reclaimed redwood fence boards. It began as a way to make a little extra money by having my buddy sell them at the farmers market and also a decent practice project for my box joining. It took several sets before I had started making them well enough to be comfortable putting my name on and selling. They did take a little longer than I thought, however, and I’m not sure if people are going to be willing to pay 20 bucks a set. It got easier once I got my hands on a decent set of dado blades, though. I guess we’ll see next month when the farmers market opens back up. If not, it looks like the family is getting coasters for Christmas this year!

Thanks guys. They were finished with penofin transparent redwood. It’s not food friendly and takes a few days for the fumes to ware off, but since it won’t be in direct contact with a counter (other than this picture) or any food, I’m not really worried about it. -Brandon
