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.
Step 1: Needed Tools and Materials
What you will need:
1. Scroll saw
3. Wood (in my case it was plywood)
4. Wood glue
5. Glue stick
7. Printed pattern (download it here: Mario Mushroom Pattern)
9. Masking tape
1. Wood stain
Step 2: Preparations
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.
Step 4: Drilling holes
Wait till glue dries up and drill holes for the scroll saw blades.
Step 5: Cutiing
Cut the pattern.
Step 6: Masking off
Rip the masking tape off.
Step 7: Sanding
Sand burrs on the underside and top of the coaster.
Step 8: Wood stain
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.
Spread wood glue on the bottom of the coaster.
Place the coaster on a piece of felt (choose any colour you like - I usually use black or white).
Cut the redundant felt.
