Coasters, Texas Mesquite Wood Coasters - set of 6
Bring a little of Texas' beautiful mesquite wood to your home. Each is hand cut, hand polished and sealed.
"I could ask for no better monument over my grave than a good mesquite tree, its roots down deep like those of people who belong to the soil, its hardy branches, leaves and fruit holding memories of the soil. . . ." - J. Frank Dobie, Texas writer
Each set of coasters comes from native Texas Mesquite wood that i gathered from my family's farm. Let me describe how I make every coaster to bring out each one's unique natural character.
Every set of coasters has a unique design that would look great on your counter or coffee table. I hand select the raw stock to find the most interesting pieces. I start off by cutting each log into sections for the coasters, and then I sand them until they are smooth, and put on a light coat of natural wood stain. I then sand them once more by hand, with very fine sandpaper, and apply a clear coat to protect each coaster's rich, deep colors, and giving it a beautiful gloss. I give them one final sanding and clear coat them once more. I then place felt pads on the bottom of each to protect furniture. Once finished, each will have deep colors, rich patina, and unique irregularities; they are then ready for your home. If you plan to send these as a gift, please see the "Gift Wrapped" listing in my shop.
There are different variations of these coasters. Some of them will have knots in the wood and give them a teardrop shape, while others are more round with beautiful, unique designs in the center.
These coasters also make great gifts. Don't forget your friends.
