Intro: Rustic Drink Coasters

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. The stand is made of the same tree limb, cut into quarters, and nailed onto slats cut from the same limb, sanded to 320 grit, and sprayed with 5 coats of the same enamel.

    Wow, this would be a good project for beginners too. Or to keep something from a tree from back home when you move away to remind you of home.

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

    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.
