Coasters made from small left over walnut scraps from other projects. Stained with Gunstock and Black walnut then urethane . Very functional. Make nice presents.

Nice project. I like how the bottom of the holder appears to be another coaster until the top 4 are removed.

Thanks. Made the pattern on my router table with a V-groove sign bit. Coasters are 4” by 4”. Set solid fence at 3.5” from bit. Clamped a board 3.5” to right of bit and another board 3.5” to left of bit. They control the start and stop of a pass and must be perpendicular to the fence. Make a pass on the router, turn coaster 90 degrees and make another pass. Add a .5” shim to the fence and make 2 more passes parallel to the first 2 passes. Repeat adding shims and making passes until the coaster is complete. A good strong tooth brush will clean out the groves.

Very nice. Love that you’re not afraid to go with a, “non traditional” finish.
