Hi everyone, I wanted to share this coaster set I made.
Each coaster is a layer of Medium Walnut with a layer of Maple Veneer on top.
I originally tried raster engraving the design into a single layer of Medium Maple, but found stacking the veneer onto walnut gave it a much more finished look.
On the bottom there’s a layer of adhesive felt which I cut on the GF using settings from this thread. The felt gives it a nicer feel when sliding the coasters on the table!
I made the design in Cuttle, an app I’m working on that combines vector editing with parametric design. (Let me know if you’d like to help beta test this!)
Update (Nov 18)
Wow! I am overwhelmed with the response to Cuttle (in a good way!)
Thank you everyone who has replied or emailed – it’s extremely encouraging and motivating.
I’ve been doing a brief video chat with new beta testers and my schedule is full the next couple of weeks. If you’re interested in beta testing, please fill out this short form and I’ll reach out when I’m ready to bring more people on.
