Making a set of four plywood faced coasters with leather inserts and felt pads on the base
This is a fairly simple affair for any novice to make as their first project on their new CNC Router. I hope you give it a try
Each coaster is 104mm square with an 80mm pocket/recess.
First I cut a piece of 5mm ply 300mm x 300mm squared everything up, marked the centre and cut out the tops with the hole in. I then cut the same with the hardboard minus the hole. Next I sanded everything down and bonded these together with wood glue. Once dry I applied a generous coat of American Walnut wood dye to the plywood grain.
Completing the job by fine sanding, masking off and spray coating the edges, recess, and undersides in matt black. Topping off with a clear satin varnish and furniture wax once dry.
I then cut the leather and stuck it down in the pocket.
Finishing off with 4 small felt pads to the base.
A nice, simple, easy job which was a joy to make.
I hope folks can take something from this post and go on to further develop and enhance its probabilities

Thanks for taking the time to view my project.
