I’ve seen lots of cutsie coasters around but nothing too contemporary for my modern tastes. These little coasters are a quick project that used scraps. Each coaster is 4 × 4 and 1/2 inch thick. I used walnut and purpleheart in these but I also have some that are maple with walnut accents. The inlays are also scraps! I did the inlay using the router table and they went very quickly. I did the straight inlay before cutting and then went back and did the corner inlay. I have had many requests for them. They are finished in 4 coats of spar varnish and hold up very well.
Thanks for looking.

Very nice. Thick too, they should last forever.

These look very nice Ellen and it’s a good time of the year to give them a proper workout!

Very nice! How does the finish hold up to moisture directly on it?

Cindy,
I’ve been using mine for about 4 years and all I ever do is wipe them off… no stains or rings.

I always like the look created by using different woods in combination. Great choices in all your creations.
