These are just some simple wood drink coasters I made yesterday. I made three different sets. Walnut, pine, and maple. And I installed a chamfer bit in my router to create a nice detail around the coaster. I finished these with polyurethane, just so if water gets on these it won’t show on the coasters.

Thanks for looking,

Way to go AJ. You know you could also try out some different router profiles on these to personalize them as well. Keep up the good work.

COOL coasters…

Do you have the bottom covered with a soft material to prevent possible scratching?

AJ, that was a good use of leftover scrap wood. I agree with Joe, some adhesive backed felt mybe.

Nice ones. AJ. Don’t every throw and useful size pieces of wood away. Something always can be made of it.
I made 3 bracelets out of thin slices of red box elder that was too nice to scrap. One of them blew up on the lathe but 2 out of 3 is not bad!!

Adding different woods together really makes the attractive!! .................Jim
