After building the awards for the Lacombe event I was left with a nice block of maple that begged to be turned into something fun. I designed these combination coaster/snack holders and proceeded to cut them out with the CNC router. Once they were cut, the block was flipped on its edge and run through the band saw to cut this layer of coasters off. This was repeated three times. Once they were cleaned up it was off to the laser for some simple yet interesting engraving of some line art drawings that my daughter had created a while back. I’m still looking for the right final oil finish for the collection thats food safe and works well with maple.
