Being relatively new to wood working I’m starting with some basic projects to familiarize myself with my new tools and am taking a learn-as-you-go approach.
I admire some of the other coaster projects here so I decided to make my own.
I used scraps of oak, mahogany, cherry, and poplar. The really goofy one I used the scraps of my scraps just for fun. Haha.
Finished with 3 coats of water proof spar urethane I used on an outdoor project recently. The water beads up nicely and doesn’t roll off unless shaken. The only thing I don’t like is the slight yellowing
effect on the wood. I’ll try something different next time.
Mostly used my table saw and sanders. Don’t have a router or band saw yet but they are on my list. :)
Any critiques and recommendations are welcome
