I made these coasters as Christmas gifts this year. The frames are 1/2” square walnut, there’s a “blades width” dado in each of them to accept the bottoms, just very thin plywood. The inside pieces are either marble or slate that i had as samples from a vendor. I took each one and cut them square and clean on my wet saw and then held them each in place with a piece of carpet tape. The finish (before the tiles were added) is about 4 coats of clear spray (can) shellac. Each coaster was then given felt feet about 1” square on each corner. Makes them sit nicely, stack nicely, and also not suction to the table.
