As i said in the last post, I suddenly realized that I have very little time to finish the things i promised people.
So, I pushed forward with these coaster.they are “sub standard” to a degree as I usually put 6-7 layers of poly on them but I managed to put only 2 on the poly ones and 2 Danish oil on the others (otherwise I will fly with wet coasters)

Nice work! I’d be nervous about putting a drink on these as in the depth it looks like the point of a cube…I’d be afraid of it tipping over.

The world famous coasters are multiplying – see, you didn’t just use the jig once.

Do I recognize some Murchison blackwood in one of them?

The geometric shapes in these make a really super visual representation. Sort of like cubism on a coaster!

Cool idea, what size wood did you start with to cut the 60 degree angles? Well done.

Is the tumbling motif going to become your “signature”? It’s certainly worthy.
