I’ve been wanting to try my hand at one of those cool end grain cutting boards I’ve been seeing here on LJ. I also needed some coasters for the coffee table I just finished (also pictured). So I figured I would kill two birds with one stone, and make some end grain coasters. This was more of an experiment than anything, but we’ll put them to good use. Didn’t really do any planning. Just cut up some scrap, glued the pieces together, and played around with a few different arrangements. Woods are mahogany, walnut, and black limba (sans the black).

They look really nice. What finish did you use?

Finish is several coats of arm-r-seal.
