I first saw this simple project in a video by Linn Orvar on YouTube. I wanted to make it and since I was hinted that we could use some coasters, I decided to crank it out between projects.
I used one of my drawer fronts that I rescued off the street. It’s not pine and I don’t see the usual greenish hue to the grain of poplar. Linn provides a printable template here. You’ll likely have to print it in two pieces and tape it together.
I cut it out with the bandsaw, rounded the top edges over slightly on the router table sanded them with a random orbit sander. I used a different stain on each piece, one piece being left plain, and then used spray lacquer to protect them. It was a very simple project, but fun.
