Step 1: Materials
2. Knitting hook
3. Needle for thick thread
4. Bass Wood
5. Adobe Illustrator vector file
Step 2: Create the Pattern Shapes in Illustrator
Create your own shape or shapes that you would like to use for the pattern on your coaster.
You can do whatever shapes you want but just keep in mind that you will need to saw them later own so make sure to include sawing holes in the shapes.
I used a bass wood for this one because it's a very light wood and I preferred my coaster be as light as possible. Another reason is that that type of wood cuts very nicely.
Step 3: Crocheting
You can do it in any style, but here a nice crochet tutorial that I found online:
Step 4: Sawing Everything Together
First, arrange the pieces on top of your crochet shape in a pattern that you would like it to be.
You might want to stick it with some pins to keep them in place.
Saw the wooden pieces on top of the crochet shape.
And..... You done!
Now its time to make some hot tea....
