Here's a set of coasters that I made from some rejected engraved signs.
I work with this stuff a lot everyday, and I've been trying for a while to figure out a way to stop throwing the scraps/leftovers/extras/rejects away. These are made from four 2" tiles of engraving stock mounted to another 4" tile of engraving stock. Then I use a template to give them a smooth routed edge and a radius corner. The uneven surface of the tiles, keeps the bottom of your cocktail glass from sticking to the coaster when you take a drink.
The best part about this project, is that it keeps a little bit of petroleum-based plastic out of our landfills.

the back sides of these coaster are not as pretty.
