    It was time to use some of the hardwood strips i ripped some time ago and there was no better way than making some coasters with my family name letter.

    The process was as follows:
    - Ripped some hardwood and the glued up alternating the species
    - Reduce to your desired thickness, i went with 8mm after slicing the piece in the saw and then leveling it with a surfacing bit on the cnc
    - Draw your desired shape on your favorite cad / drawing app. Coasters are usually 90mm to 100mm
    - Create operations in Laserweb4. Pocket 1mm for the Y letter and then an outside cut
    - Mix resin with pigment powder and carefully pour into the pockets.
    - Sand surface to get the resin to be flush with the rest of the surface
    - Add some finish and sealer
