Coasters mostly are more practical than they are pretty, considering that their sole purpose is keeping your coffee table from getting damaged by sweaty glasses. But one Redditor turned a dead tree branch into the coolest drink coasters you’ll ever see with resin and some cool powder.
He started out with four wood pieces from a dead tree.
He used a pencil to draw lines on the wood for the cracks.
Next, he cut the wood into pieces.
He taped the wood together with painter’s tape.
And mixed resin and blue glowing powder. The solution will fill the cracks.
Time to pour it!
When the resin dried, he took the tape off, sanded the coasters, and covered them in polyurethane for protection.
The finished product looks amazing!
The project is simple, but the results are fascinating…
And even cooler in the dark.
