Quick? How soon were you able to whip those beauties out? Would probably take me a week!

Great looking coasters. That’s a good use of scrapes.

Great job! Are you going to mix them up or give them as matched sets?

Nice project! They look to be about 1/2 inch thick – am I close?

They will be given away in matched sets. You are right Steve, they are 1/2 inch thick.

Hey Glen,
I want to say thanks. I went into the shop today and was going to chuck some of my scraps until I saw your coaster project. I said WOW that’s what I’ll do with this stuff. I HATE throwing away any wood. So I spent the day making coasters. Everything is glued up and tomorrow I’ll cut to size, sand and finish. I’m going to make a holder for them as well. Again, thanks for to inspiration.

That’s cool Don. Make sure to post pictures of them when you have them finished. The really neat thing about these is that they will be unique. There will never again be any that will be the exactly the same.

Nice looking coasters. I made some a year or two ago and found them very hard to sand. Because of the small size they were hard for me to hold on to while sanding.

Did you have any tricks for holding them while sanding them?

Great idea and nicely done.
There on my list. But it’s a long list and my wife is in charge of the list. But maybe someday.
