Step 1: Cutting and Routing
unfortunately I only realised I was gonna make an instructable after finishing this project.
I cut 5 pieces of laminate flooring at 10cm square.
I then used a router with a roundover bit installed to round the top and bottom off all the pieces.
Step 2: Routing
It was at this point I realised I had set the depth wrong on the chamfer bit as it cut a line into the coaster all the way around, but I think it adds character so I went with it.
Step 3: Holder
I used one of the 5 cuts to make a holder for the coasters, I used a straight bit in the router to cut 4 daedos at equal distances from the back of the piece.
Step 4: Finishing Touch
I lined all 4 daedos and the backs of the coasters with felt so they don't scratch the table.
I think they turned out alright. Any questions let me know as it's my first instructable so not great at explaining what I've done.
