My son has chosen to go to IA State for college. He asked about getting some custom made coasters for his room there. We found some Padauk wood at the woodsmith store, and I used some scrape osage / hedgewood to get a color close to IA State’s colors.

He then wanted logos burned in, however, my wife has some scrapbooking stampers that had the logo, so we used that instead. Much easier. A few coats of lacquer and then some cork feet to finish it off. He was really happy with it.

Always nice to see fellow Cyclones (or their families)!

Nice project that will be a hit among friends in Ames. I wouldn’t be surprised to hear that you get a few more requests for them. And btw – great choice on the woods for cardinal and gold.
