Gifted coasters with personalized pictures embedded in clear resin. Coasters are redwood, stained red oak, and finished with polycrylic. Base is pine, stained and finished the same.

That is a cool idea. When you say embedded in resin what is the actual process? Is it as simple as putting resin on the wood, placing the picture, and then more resin?

Jason, for pictures it doesn’t matter too much if you get resin on it so I’ll usually superglue the picture into the recess of the coaster and pour the resin right on top.
