This was a set of table coasters that I made for our house. OOPS!! I was wrong we do have something that I carved in our house!!! These are made of butternut, chip carved, and then stained. I bought the sandstone inserts and used contact adhesive to attach them. Enjoy.

Rog: very nice. So the little woman is letting you help decorate the house huh. Or did these just get snuck in.

They look great. You didn’t make a set of 12 for when you really entertain?

Karson, I thiught I had better start bring them in small #’s that way she might not notice. LOL! I think the only reason she like these was because she really liked the sandstone.

Rog, whenever I see your work it reminds me of everytime I see someone sit down and just effortlessly start playing the piano. I always say to myself, man-oh-man, if I could play like that, that’s all I would do for the rest of my life is sit there and play and play and play.

Well, if I could carve like you can, I’m not so sure even things like eating and sleeping would be much of a priority anymore. As always I am awestruck by your craftsmanship. To elevate an object as simple as a coaster to a piece of art is really something special. Thanks for sharing your work and I look forward to seeing more of it in the future.

Almost reminds one of Marquetry. Nice job Rog.

Nice job! The sandstone almost looks like miniature landscapes.

Karson, the sandstone I bought on the Internet already cut to 1/8”T. X 3 1/8”Dia. Suppliers are out there you just have to spend a little time looking. If I remember right two sets of 4 were only like $10.
