Rosewood Coasters


These coasters were a wedding gift for friends. The coasters are inspired from one of their wedding photos, where they appear dancing only as a silhouette.

I managed to find a beautiful piece of rosewood, from which I engraved and cut the coasters using a CNC mill. The resulting wooden discs slid easily against a table top, so I added a layer of cork to the bottom. To add some texture to the engraving, I lightly tapped a nail into the engraving in a random pattern. The coasters were then finished with several coats of polyurethane.
