Beginners are encouraged to come and try their hand and meet with like minded people to learn and to discuss projects and techniques.

Set of Six Boxed Coasters

This drink coaster set was crafted by one of our members ten months after taking up scroll sawing.

The recycled eucalypt timber was from sheds and sheep yards erected in the 1940/50’s then dismantled and stored under cover for fifty years. Not surprisingly, it was very tough to saw with many blunt and some broken saw blades.
The coaster design was obtained from the Internet
There are six coasters
The box has the design on three sides whilst the fourth side has a slot for easy removal of a coaster
The base was rebated into the sides three mms from the bottom
The story of the timber was printed on 80gsm plain paper and glued to the base
The coasters and box have cork corners on the bottom for protection
The finished product was sprayed with Wattyl Estapol Interior Satin Polyurethane
The complete item took something like eighty hours to make
