Cherry And Maple Wooden Coasters
This was a fun little project that I did over the weekend. I used some cherry and curly maple for these coasters. The final dimension of the coasters are 3 3/4 inches squared.
These coasters are made out of cherry and curly maple. The boards I started with were 16 inches long, 4 inches wide and 3/8 inches thick. The final size of the coasters are 3 3/4 inches squared.
Big strips are 1 1/2 inches wide. The small strips are 1/4 inch wide.
Glue up time.
I use my crosscut sled and a stop block to cut them to 3 3/4 inches.
A 2 3/4 inch forstner bit was used to make the cork holes.
Here I am gluing the cork to the bottom of the coasters using regular wood glue.
I put yellow tape in the holes while I sprayed 3 coats of a semi-gloss deft lacquer
Final step was to glue the cork in the top holes using regular wood glue.
