These coasters were made from scrap that couldn’t be recycled into nothing else. the scrap is mostly Rimu, Silver beech, pine, oak (salvaged from firewood) and Oregon pine (AKA Douglas fir).

finished with wipe on poly

Really great idea. I especially like the fact that you can see the next layer of wood in the cut out for the cups!

Another good reason not to be too much in a hurry to throw small pieces of wood out.They look great and very economical as well as being good practice turning well done Alistair

They were not turned!!!! the hole was done using a router. I now have a lathe, so i could turn this, I guess.

Good use of scrap wood, and functional as well.
