Was busy in the shop today working on some Christmas gifts for our company staff party next weekend,this project is not complete yet I have to build the holders for these coasters, They will be built out of Maple and Dark Walnut. As for the coasters they are a mix of Brazilian Cherry and Dark Walnut and maple which is what I had in my scrap bin.,then I coated them with 3 coats of Bee’s Wax and Mineral Oil just like I use on my cutting Boards due to there End Grain Coaster kinda looks like a miniature cutting board. Hope you guys Like?

I actually have a 10” long block in the clamps right now for a coaster set that matches an end-grain cutting board I am making. Do you mind divulging what thickness your coasters are? I hadn’t decided on that yet for mine. Looks great tho!
