I’m getting married in September 2014 and we thought it would be cool to do something a little more personal for wedding favors. I milled and cut these coasters out of 8/4 Ambrosia Maple, routed the sides, and then finished with clear Shellac. Before finishing I branded the tops with our names and the wedding date (got the electric brander deal from Rockler). Ended up making approx 400 coasters (2 per guest)!

Thanks!! Yeah, I usually take the last 15 min or so of shop time to try to sweep up all the shavings and dust. I guess you could say I’m a little OCD or “broken” haha.

Very nice idea. And there is nothing wrong with being OCD on shop clean up!
