I always loved video games and woodworking.
Since I bought a scroll saw I started cutting projects based on video games.
This is one of them - Mario Mushroom Wooden Coasters.

When I scroll cut a project I try to stack minimum two wood pieces at the same time - thanks to stack cutting I get two identical cuts in only one cut. We just need to take two pieces of wood, place one on another and wrap them with masking tape.



Step 3: Glue the pattern

Spread stick glue on the upper side of the stack and place pattern on it.

Depending of type of used wood we can apply wood stain. 

Step 9: Varnish

When the wood stain dries out apply 2-3 coats of varnish. Off course wait till each coat of varnish dries out before applying the next one. Before applying every coat of varnish gently sand the coaster with fine-grained sandpaper.

Step 10:

Adorable and eye catching! I was never even good at Super Mario Bros. and I want some of these :)

These look great!

An improvement to make would be to fill the cutouts somehow - maybe with an resin. I'd be worried about smaller glasses being unstable on those coasters otherwise.
Really like these!
