These were some coasters i made as a gift this past christmas. They’re made of some scrap maple, cherry, & walnut i had lying around. They were shaped with a router & finished with 3 coats of hand rubbed polyurethane.

I used double sided carpet tape to hold the actual blanks to a scrap piece of plywood while routing. Hot glue was used to affix the templates which had a larger surface area to make it a bit more stable to rout.

It is still amazing to me what a few pieces of scrap wood can turn into. Great job.
