Anytime you install a new floor, you have scraps.  I put down some laminate recently and was thinking of what I could make from the scraps before they got tossed out.  Always short on coasters because of my prolific beverage consumption habits, I decided to make a couple to match my floors for the top of my bar.

Laminate floorboard scraps
Quarter round scraps
"Crazy" glue
Wood glue

Miter saw
Some sort of clamp

Step 1: Gather your scrap

For these I used some left over "Uniclic" flooring with attached padding I had put down in my living room as well as some quarter round I had left over from doing the trim work around my fireplace... both sort of a cherry oak color.
Great looking coasters!
Thanks :)
