Bear paw beer coasters

These I did with leftover collector plate interior cutouts and paw pics from the net. Coasters are made from all birch. Paws stained walnut at 1/4" . Finish is cabot satin and four coats. 6"x6" round. Cheers boys!

I guess you can call it that or marquetry. I turn the saw roughly 3º or so depending on blade and thickness of material used. I pop em in place till satisfied then sand. Ill pop em out and stain. When I put em back I use clear glue around edges. To cut out each individual piece I drill a tiny hole in an area where its hidden I.e. tight corner. It hides very well. I'm glad you like em. My next feat is deer hooves.

You sure can no problem... its a great idea. If you can take a look at my dog pic when I post it..... it Will be titled sir bennie. Its a min pin of ours that I did work on photoshop to make it a custom pattern. Dont forget if you scroll those paws, test on a scrap to get a tight fit first. Different thicknesses change the degree. Also I do believe it is clockwise cutting to inlay it. It will save much frustration. I'm glad you like this and thank you for the comment!

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!


Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.


Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.



One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
