Good job Sir,

Coasters are cut on a SCMS to around 1/4 inch [6mm] ... they are cut sanded and finished with poly while still green… seems to stabilise the round.. very few crack or split… and the bark stays on …[for a while]

From the forest to Australian Forrest Growers who made them grow in the first place, what could be more fitting?

Nice stuff Larry!

Great work Larry. The corporate gift market is huge in almost every (civilised) country. I’m glad to see that you are tapping into it.
