A set of coasters that I turned out after a frustrating mistake on the chess board. I needed a different router bit to fix a giant mis-cut on my chess board and I didn’t really feel like going out in the cold rain that night to buy a new bit.

I had some 1/2” thick stock of the curly maple I used for chess squares so I cut up some 4” squares and by the end of the evening they were sanded and ready to finish. 4 coats of satin poly.

I brought them into work and gave one each to the three guys who work for me. Now we are all drinking our coffee in style! :)

Thanks for looking.

Great small project. Sometime you need to step back and do the smaller things just to relax. Great gift for co-workers.

Keep it up.
