A very simple set of coasters made from Maple. I was just gathering some logs from our firewood pile when I noticed the end-grain of one particularly nice log. I sliced 4 sections off it, sanded and varnished them. Now we can protect our new oiled counter against cup stains. A word of warning for any readers who plan on making some of these yourself; cutting un-straightened stock on a mitre saw can lead to bad accidents if a steady jig isn’t used.
