Would have looked neat if you put some of the block in the lathe. Great looking coasters though!

Beautiful! I like the shadow edge underneath the coaster, give it a kind of floating effect. Did you router this in or did you put some sort of cork like material underneath to keep them from sliding about? I wish I had that variety and amount of scrap laying about my shop.

Wow! With that many coasters you must have alot of end tables at your house. Just joking…nice project that I’m sure will be copied by many lumberjocks in the future. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks all. GodofBiscuits- I glued on cork squares slightly smaller in size that the coaster itself. The wood species are walnut, maple, and cherry. My staples.

Combining the walnut, cherry, and maple really brings out the individual beauty of each wood. I love the random pattern. Also, an excellent use of what many would consider landfill bound material. Nice project!

Very cool! I also made some coaster sets from a plan in Wood Magazine, No. 207, October, 2011. It was fun. I love the way your coaster sets look and untilize all the “I’ll save these scraps and use thm some day” stock that you made them from. I’m bookmarking the article in your blog and will try your design sometime here in the near future. Thanks fro sharing.
