Working on this tutorial now - I figured instead of going through the entire thing then dropping a link somewhere - we could all work together on filling in the gaps.
So - here is the DRAFT version of the coaster tutorial.
You can see where there is information and where there are only pictures. I’m working through filling in with more description now, but I’d love to hear what additional information would be useful for someone looking to recreate this project!
Also - big shout-out and thank you to @ItsDan for the veneering for contrast idea!
