From Scrap Wood to the Coolest COASTERS... in Minutes!

So... I had to come up with a creative way to solve a (coffee addiction) problem. With nearly every table top made from reclaimed wood in my home, coffee rings are not pretty.
Enter... reclaimed wood COASTERS.
Reclaimed wood coasters utilize nothing more than wood scraps. They are cheap (if not free) to make, and fun to style with your given twist.
To protect your wood coasters, seal them with a furniture wax, and you'll be good to go.
Here are a few I've made... which one is your fav?
Hello there you cute little coaster puzzle! 1 small fence board and a cool stencil, and you are done!
Stencil used is the 10" Route 66 from my own collection. (link below)
The first thing you need to do to make reclaimed wood coasters is collect any and all old wood. This was from a falling down fence in my neighbourhood.
Do you think I have enough here for a coaster or two? Me neither! I'd better go get more... :)
Add vintage flair to a few cedar strips with a yardstick! A few rusty washers just seal the junker deal.
Make sure you check out that fab crate turned tray... perfect for serving up your coffee!
These coasters have your number (couldn't help myself) if you love your typography. Note the cut off numbers? Stylin' too! Keep'em guessing with your designs and try the unexpected.
I added one more thing to them too, something junkers will appreciate...
My brother gave me some firewood. But I'd much rather indulge in coffee than stack wood, so a few slicers later, I had some really cute log styled coasters.
Wait till you see what I put them inside... you'll want to make one of these too!
Don't forget to bundle up your cute coasters with some rustic twine, and maybe even a cheesy printable for presentation. Perfect as a hostess gift!
Plus.. you might get served coffee then... Ok, that did it. I must immediately take matters into my own hands...
Ahhh... much better! Visit how I made ALL of these coasters (and more) in the link below!
