I’ve been thinking about making some coasters to give as xmas gifts this year. I think I would like to make a similar version of some coasters that a friend of mine bought me at a craft fair. I will try to attach a pic of said coaster to this post. I have about 10 board feet of some curly cherry I think will be nice for the project.
What I’m thinking…
FYI, that is a nickel in pic of coaster
I guess my main question is how beefy of a drill press is needed to bore though hardwoods with a big 3&1/2” forstner bit? (I don’t yet own a drill press and this is a good excuse to buy one. I’ve been wanting one for a while)
I am waaayyyyyyy open to any suggestions if you may think of an easier/better way to complete this project.
THANKING YOU ALL IN ADVANCE!
