    Walnut Coasters

    Here is a set of 6 Walnut coasters. They will be going to the art gallery tomorrow. They measure 4 1/2" +/- 1/16". They are finished with GF Woodturners finish. They have felt on the bottom and cork insert.

    Thanks Mohammad. I need to order some more cork as I don't think these will last long at all.

    Very cool coasters Bernie. do you just part off from a round for each one? That is make the profile on the end then part off and repeat? I am having a duh uh moment on how to make these.

    Thanks Ron. I actually cut up some 8/4 walnut end cutoffs I had laying around. I cut 5" circles which when turned round were 4 1/2". I put a small tenon on one end and actually made two out of the one 5" X 8/4 piece. When I got the recess cut for the cork I parted it off and turned a jam chuck to fit the recess to finish the bottom.
