Coasters

So i made a bunch of coasters today. Have to finish routing and sanding them and apply poly to them. Let me know what you think. They are 4x4 square 3/8" thick. Made out of walnut and oak. Hopfully these sets( since there are 12 sets total) dont warp.

With these laminations, I think warping shouldnt be an issue :)

ONE slight recommendation if I may! I've made sets like this myself, and they always had this "incomplete" feel to them. I found by adding "feet" they had a much more polished and refined feeling despite it just being pieces of cheapo rubber on the bottom.

If you have a table router and a chamfer bit; or are handy with a block plane, a nice 45 chamfer also brings out a more "this is more than just a square piece of wood" feel.

So far looks good, lemme know how you finish em.

Im going to put a routed edge on them with a round over bit. Knock off all the sharp edges. This set i wont put feet on just because i dont have them right now and i need to get these sold but i will definatly think about that in the future.

You can get stick-on round felt feet at any craft store like Michaels, Jo-Ann, Hobby-Lobby, or even Walmart. You can also find them in cork or rubber.

If you have trouble selling the coasters, consider making boxes or holders for them. When my spouse buys coasters, she wants a holder to keep them corralled when they are not in use.
