My trophy wife recently bought some beverage coasters. They are shown in the first photo. I had a bit of mahogany left over from a previous project, and made the improvement shown in photo 2. She responded with glowing approval.

Nice upgrade. Those coasters would soak up the moisture, seep through and ruin a table top. Now the wood base will save the furniture.

Thanks guys. It is finished with shellac, but I put several coats of paste wax followed by a buff coat of Renaissance wax. I think it’ll deal with the moisture for a while.

I’m not sure if this is a lathe project, or a router project, but either way, you sure made a great improvement.

Even the smallest of projects have the biggest effect. Nice work adding a decorative piece to a standard utensil.
