I mader this coaster set from Woodsmith Magazine #189 to protect the coffee table that I have built from that same issue. The dark wood is black walnut and is mitered. The coaster are made from maple and are routed to hold the cork inlay. The coffee table that I made is currently in the finishing stage and is shown in the last picture. I have only stained the drawers, but I should finish the staining this weekend. Hope you like them.

I am also looking to see if anyone else has atttemped to build this coaster set or the coffee table. I would LOVE to see someone elses take on them.

Nice job. I made the coasters only, but found that the 3.5×3.5’’ dimensions listed in the plans was a little small. 4×4 seem to be better. I used red oak to better match some of our tables and stained them with some dark walnut Watco and finished with GF Arm R Seal. I also used a photo copy of each coasters top to give me a template from which to cut the cork inlay accurately.
