      Coasters are Walnut, Cherry and Ipe.
      Stand is white Oak.

        Re: Coasters with a stand.

        Are you applying flocking or felt to the bottoms? Coasters are meant for polished tables, a concept we have a hard time expressing to guests under 60!

          That’s a neat idea Red, also the light and dark mix of the wood you used for the coasters looks good, nice work all around.

          I made a bunch while still living inThe Netherlands, I got 2 sticks of Afzelia wood from my friend at the sawmill and made a bunch of coasters, however I should have realized that glasses and cups are often larger than the ones we were using at our home, anyway I made a box and filled it with coasters, it wasn’t easy turning the hard tropical hardwood and then slicing every coaster of of the block with a machine hacksaw blade, pretty rough bottoms that way and then had to sand them smooth by hand, though it all got dome and we still have them, but they get rarely used.

          In the mean time I have turned a few larger ones and they sit around and get used for coasters and every other purpose LOML finds for them

            Not planning to, but not a bad idea.

              Looks great, I like the idea and appearance of the base to keep them in order.
