Here are a few coasters I made so that drinks would not get set on all the furniture I have made(hopefully). They are Birdseye maple and walnut. Not sure what the dowel is made of but I liked that hint of red it gives. I put cork in the recess where the drink sits.

Those look to be very well done. You have also given me another gift idea. Thanks for posting.

Very well done! I like the edge detail, makes them ‘more than your average coaster’ !

looks like a great artistic sculpture… and then SURPRISE – you can use it!
I like how they sit on an angle in the holder.
Nicely done.

Very nice design… simple yet effective and very useful… I am quickly becoming a fan of birdseye maple, now if I can just get my hands on a lot of it… hmmmm, the possibilities… thanks for posting…

How thick are the coasters ? I really like the added profile and the holder as well : )

Very nice job. I did a similar set a while back: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/14604
Love the wood selection of yours. The cove on the bottom is a nice touch.

This is what is missing from the furniture I have already made. I NEED to make some coasters! Great job.
