I’m making coasters for my sister and brother-in-law and have had the design down for a few weeks now but am just starting to work on it now. Below is the design I have in mind.
NOTE – arrows indicate direction of the grain as I was planning
The problem I’ve run into that the two pieces on the sides (maple and walnut) in the drawing above would have end grain glued to the long grain of the center piece (cherry). So my question is, is this something to worry about and how can I solve it?
When I first realized the problem I was thinking I could use biscuits but I’m worried that the wood is too thin. All wood is two 1/4” pieces laminated together to make them all 1/2” thick.
Thank you for the suggestions and help with this guys!
