Made some coasters for my son and his friends. He attends George Washington University and lives in a house on Olive St. that has earned the nickname “The Olive” from his fraternity brothers. I put together some royalty free logos and designed the coasters in Inkscape. I engraved them on proofgrade maple and coated them with resin. I cut peel and stick cork and applied that to the bottom. I used magnets to keep the cork flat while being cut to size. Once I had the system down, I made some more for one of his best friends who lives at another of their fraternity outposts named “The Lion’s Den.” Reliving college vicariously through coasters? Guilty. It beats the alternatives!
