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.

Product arrived very poorly packaged. The wooden coasters were loosely tied with a string and put in a large envelope (not a box). No packing material was used so they banged against each other and were subject to whatever it is the post office does to packages. They arrived with the majority of the bark broke off.
