I oil everything, if the customer does not keep it up then the wood will dry out.
It was always my notion that coaster were trivets for drinking vessels to prevent
damage to the surface directly.
You then get coaster liners that have tissue on the top and a wax paper underneath
for absorbing moisture.
I also put cork under such items, I know that space could an issue with your design but
you can get 1/32” self adhesive cork or just put four coasters in a set my 2p worth =3c :)
