What It TakesTime: 2 hoursCost: FreeSkill Level: BeginnerGlue a series of layersOrganize your boards into multiple layers, each about 4-1/2 in.wide.Measure the narrowest board in each layer and rip the rest of the boards in the layer to the same dimension, so each layer is a uniform thickness.
Spread glue to the edges and clamp the boards.Wipe away any excess glue with a damp rag and allow the layers to dry fully.Joint and planeUnclamp the rows and flatten one face on the jointer.Run the boards through a planer, with the flat face down, for a completely flat board of uniform thickness.
Create a blockStack the rows to create a block.Spread glue to the edges of the row faces and clamp them together.Joint and planeUnclamp the block and flatten one face on the jointer.Run the block through a planer, with the flat face down, until you reach a finished size of 4 x 4 in.
Round the corners with 120-grit sandpaper.Crosscut the blockCrosscut the jagged end from the block on the miter saw, revealing the finished coaster design.Put two layers of painter's tape on the base of the miter saw and cut a kerf into the tape.
This prevents your coasters from slipping into the saw's insert and getting destroyed by the spinning blade.Mark a line 3/8 in.away from the saw kerf.Align the block with the mark and start slicing off coasters.
