My Company Logo Coaster

Here is a mango wood coaster with a live edge that I engraved my company logo into. I love the way it turned out and it opens up a ton of possibilities for both advertisement and Christmas presents.

Beautiful - and I bet the reverse engraving would look just as sweet.

Nice logo :slight_smile:

Yes. Reverse engraving would be equally as cool. Good eye. Thanks for the compliment on the logo. I designed it myself.

Looks great! What are you finishing them with to help stand up to liquids?

I did the Johnson plastics saddle collection coasters with my company logos on them this past year for Christmas gifts-came out great and now I have plenty of my clients doing advertising for me by using my coasters in their conference rooms :smile:

Thank you. Mango wood is naturally oily, so it has a nice water repellent quality but also is just absorbant enough that I don’t finish them with anything. Cedar also has the same properties. If I’m making coasters out of another wood I generally finish with boiled linseed oil. Too protected and it will just divert the condensation of an overly sweaty drink right on to the desk. Thanks for checking it out.

As I was writing that, I was wondering about if mango wood was one that would hold up well naturally-we have a mango wood dresser, but I’ve never worked with it. Thanks for the info!

Neat!

What settings do you get that engrave depth with, and what do you clean the scorched wood with?

Per forum guidelines (and friendly lawyers), you can’t discuss settings for non-Proofgrade material in this forum, only in Beyond the Manual.

Love the live edge, and the logo is great!

That looks fabulous! I love the rustic, yet polished look. Well done!

Thank you so much and welcome to the Glowforge community.

Sorry for the newbie question… How did you minimize the look of the burnt wood and more importantly how did you maintain some of the peaks and valleys of the grain of the wood where are you engraved. In some situations I would prefer the engraved part to look more ruff and follow the natural grain than the smooth look I’ve been achieving.
