Nice job Alex! Hadn’t watched the vid on YouTube yet, so I watched it here. I think the Mahogany banding really makes the coasters pop! Just shows what last minute changes can do for a project. Added to my favorites.

You’ve got really nice scraps!
How did you get the random look and not end up with spaces between some pieces?
I don’t see the lines that would come from laminating layers.

Seriously, they came out beautiful.
