Wooden coasters.
I don't know how useful these coasters actually are. After all, they're treated to resist soaking up water. But a good coaster absorbs water to prevent runoff. But, at the least, they look cool. I used various species of wood, including cedar, pine, wenge, purple heart, padauk, hard maple, mahogany, red oak, birch plywood and lacewood.

These are finished with about 3 coats or spar varnish. The bottoms are covered with self-adhesive cork sheeting. There is a total of 18 coasters.
