A friend of mine had a cherry tree taken down. I took a few short branch logs with the intent on making something with them. She mentioned she needed some coasters, and I had a friend with a CNC machine, so this idea struck me. She is an animal lover – she owns 2 horses and a cat. The pictures on the coasters are pictures her family, horses and kitty cat.
I sliced the branch logs on the bandsaw at about 5/4 and dried the small 12-14” pieces in the microwave. It worked remarkably well.
The posts on the holder are secured with glue and small brass dowels (epoxied in place).
They are about 4” square, about 1/2” thick.
Look at the last picture to see the original photos.
Thanks for looking.
