I need to make some coasters to help keep my restored coffee table from needing refinished again. I would love some inspiration by seeing the best coasters you all have made!
Well, somebody’s gotta hold down the low end of the contest …
Which look better in acrylic:
Sharpie colored holly mirror in plywood:
And for really spicy drinks:
When a friend asked “How many coasters do you really need?” I had no answer …
not my best ones but they are right in front of me… edge grain birch with 3mm birch ply. My business logo and lots of coffee stains.
4 coasters on to Thuja (Thuja occidentalis) wooden disks I made from cutt down tree’s in my own garden . 80-90 mm wide and 8-10 mm thick, dried for almost 2 months, 95 % of them survived without cracking. Done on a X-Tools F1 I just got. 100 mm/s, 60 power, 100 lines/cm and 1 pass.
I love the dog, did you design it?
Ha, the color wheel reminds me of the NBC logo, those all are great. I assume the geode looking one is a resin pour right?
That top photo engrave is fantastic, great work all around.
Ooo, these would make great Christmas gifts for a few members of my family. Awesome job!
Smashed tempered glass and black epoxy inside four acrylic layers, with cork stuck on the bottom:
Which put the workbench out of bounds:
That was a learning experience …
No, I found it quite a while back, I believe it was a right-click save-as kind of thing off the interweb.
Looks good… but I’d give yourself some margins, since it’s text involved.
Get Grandma to knit some. lol
I’ve looked at a lot of these slate engravings and I think you’d do better with lower power…
Although these were done on the fiber with the proper settings, I think you can see the results of a lower power application. These are filled vectors.
Another example, from the co2 machine is this pair of leaves… The left one is fine, but the right one had about 15% more power… you can see the results are clearly too much power… This is an image.
Great work, keep it up…
