Hello, i just wanted to show off a set of coasters i made. they are made of 1" slices of a white oak tree limb cut on a table saw, sanded to 320 grit, and sprayed with 5 coats of clear enamel paint.

    Hey, how about woodburning messages or art into them before clearcote so each has a message?

    Great idea! I never would have thought of that. unfortunately, I don't have a woodburner.


    It's early morning here, it took a few blinks to make the image match the title.

    Yeah, it was almost 12 AM when I was looking at it.

    Ha, I never would have thought of that, but now I totally see it!

    Nice job.

    Looking forward to step-by-steps of future projects.

    Thank You! That really means a lot coming from someone such as Yourself.
    And I am, unfortunately, terrible at taking pictures of things I make, I normally just have an idea and jump right into it without the slightest bit of a plan or idea of how it is going to turn out.
