This is a set of handmade coasters I produced for a friend. She lives in and grew up around Rochester, NY, also known as “The Flower City” for their annual Lilac Festival. The woodburned design on the coaster holder is directly from the flag of the City of Rochester.
The coasters are made from ambrosia maple, and the holder is pine. The holder is lined with a piece of suede. Some of the coasters had to have holes filled with epoxy. Each coaster was also given a small cove around its circumference to make the coasters (at 1/2” thick) appear visually thinner.
All parts were finished with three coats of Minwax Wipe-on Polyurethane.
