Here are some coasters I made as a gift a couple xmas’s ago. Stained them with transtint. Did the shabby sunburst with Master Toner. Inlaid some shotgun shell caps and ‘those other items’. Coated ‘em with epoxy. They’re best used for cold drinks because the epoxy can get marred with hot drinks.

They loved them, and I had fun making them.

Nice work. They look great. I’m assuming your friends live here in Texas, while you live way up there in the wet land??

Very nice detail. How did you cut them out? Inlays? I was thinking of doing something similar for Montana and scratching my head how much detail to put in the state outline. How thick are thecoasters?

Great idea! Like the stain and finish as well as the inlaid shell caps. Awesome!

Thank you!

I printed off a pic of Texas. 3m’d it to a piece of 1/4” ply. Hogged out most of the wood on the bandsaw. Filed back the rest, and then used that as a template.

Have your say...
