Game of Thrones Coasters


#1


Hey all,

First time post of things I’ve made so far. Wanted to share my coasters.

Going to visit my girlfriend’s family and wanted to make something for the guys. We all watch Game of Thrones so why not some coasters. Found some art, quick design of the holder and the Glowforge did the rest. I added some adhesive backed foam on the bottom after staining the baltic birch. Lastly did a quick reversed engrave Night King coaster on acrylic with some front “ice cracks” engraved as well.

I’ll add some more Glowforge goodies next week. Have a good one!

Nice collection of stains… got a preferred brand/colors?

The stains are from Home Depot. Varathane brand. Colors were Gray, Golden Pecan, Sedona Red and Gunstock. The Lannister coaster was a quick stain of Golden Pecan followed up by Gunstock in order to achieve the color I wanted. Becky is an impressionist artist and has a great eye for color. She immediately discussed staining them after I had made them.

Thanks! I gave the coasters out this past week and they went over like hotcakes! People were so amazed at the quality that they continually asked if they were bought or done from an outside source. They couldn’t believe that this could be done at home with the Glowforge.

I have a lot to learn… especially the best way to pre-stain wood prior to cut/engrave.
