I have made some cherry drink coasters . . . no, not coasters for cherry flavored drinks; cherry wood shaped into coasters for any drinks ;-) I normally reserve poly for floors and doorway thresholds. Any thoughts on poly for these coasters? Good plan? Varnish instead?
P.s. Lesson learned; never make coasters for anyone, ever, ever, ever. No matter how much attention you give in making them, they still look like something anyone could pickup at Wal-Mart for $10.
