Coasters Made Out of (scrap) Plywood

4 Materials
1 Hour

I made a little drawer cabinet (shown in another project - check it out) and that left me with some scrap material - triangular shaped strips. My wife asked me to cut them up in little pieces, so she could make something out of it. Out came two coasters. Check out the short video.

My wife made this out of them with some woodglue. After that they were treated with furniture oil.

    How clever! And as I looked at them, I thought of how unique these would look as corner pieces at the top of door moldings in a rustic setting...Just a thought! People use those squares with carvings inside them...I think they are called "rosettes!"
