This started out as a cutting board, but had a bunch of problems. I ended up just makign coaster instead.
The plan was to cut thin strips of walnut and maple and then glue together one of each. Then glue those bundles together into strips. This is rather than solid strips of maple and walnut. I’ll try this again someday, but for now we have nice end grain coasters.
On the bottom I glued some no-skid material. I finished it with wipe on matte poly.
