We have needed coasters for our new table and I always have to run in the other room to get one or two. Then when I was slicing off a log to make some coaster blanks for a lady from our guild, I just sliced some off for us too. I did not want to have to make a holder and keep them on that table but wanted them close by, so I got the idea to store them on magnets right under the table. I first had to mock up a sample to see if the rare earth magnet would hold through a piece of felt… and it did very well.
So here they are.. 4 Arizona juniper coasters with a steel disk embedded in the bottom and covered with self adhesive felt. They were cut flat on the lathe and grooved in the top.
They are finished with semi gloss polyurethane.
