Well, as promised to friends, I have made more coasters. These new ones are made up of 13 different scrap boards I dug out of my burn bin. I got a lot of practice at squaring them up and making good glue joints. Also spent a lot of quality time with the planer. Now it has been suggested that I try to peddle them at some local bars and restaurants. I have no idea what the outcome of that might be, and no idea what they might be worth. Probably not much. But, once I get them squared up I can produce them pretty quick. These are sanded to 220 and have 2 coats of tung oil. They are made of a combination of red oak, white oak, and maple that came out of an old gym floor. I know, I said I would never combine red and white oak again. Never say never.
