Branch to Table

I'm always on the lookout for hardwoods, either from branches that have fallen or from old furniture that people leave out on the curb. The other day while on my daily walk through the neighborhood I came across a beautiful eucalyptus branch that had been off the tree for a while, as it was very dry and ready for the saw. At first I didn't know what I was going to use it for, but I picked it up knowing it was a great piece to add to my stock inventory. After some closer examination, I decided it was the perfect diameter for coasters, and so began the process of cutting, sanding and oiling.  Here are a few shots of the process. These coasters will be available for purchase soon! Cheers!
