Just thought I would try to make some end grain coasters. I’m happy with them, just wish their overall size was more consistent between one design and the other… next set…..

Very nice! I’ve considered doing some of these, but I wasn’t sure about their strength. How thick are they? They look to be more than 1/4” – more like 3/8”?

Love the look of these. Do you think the plywood end grain will hold up? What type of finish did use?

I hope so… lol… I finished them with water based Poly… but may follow up with cutting board wax for some extra shine. I plan on putting cork on the bottom (4×4 sheet)....

Bravo! These look great, very intricate.
I assume you built up a coaster “log” then sliced off individual coasters?

Thank you. Yes – correct – one layer at a time – glue up, plane, then next layer… took a while but you have a lot more design options than if you made them the traditional way…

What a great look. Making them is like gluing up an inlay strip, a lot of work.
Thanks for shsring.

-- Joel, People ask what I make. I tell them I make sawdust, and now and then a nice box or frame,or clock, or lamp pops out.
