    end grain coasters mk2 project

    i realized that i started the other end grain coasters without the benefit of a plan. so, i got organized, and precut all of the parts, and worked out how they would stack up from there. i figured that i could get 20 sets of 3/8" coasters between the 2 of them.

    These are fun. I use no plan. I just keep adding scrap over the year and somewhere before Christmas I have a loaf to cut up. Here's a thread from a couple years back . . . I still have some sets left

    so far so good! the only part that was planned was the cutting of the parts, squares, rectangles, odd maple parts (nifty that they came out at 3/8" thick after making other cuts). then it was set it up by guess and by golly, and then the glue up. today i clean up, and slice these balonies.

    getting close to the end of this one. brought the blanks over to the shop, and cleaned up the sides and the end to be cut. i managed to get 16 sets of 4 from both blanks. now all that is left is the sanding and oiling.
