If there are two things you guys know I love so much it’s scrap wood projects and coasters. So, as a fun little holiday break project, I created some DIY scrap wood ocean coasters as a gift for a Secret Santa I was part of with the Maker’s Happy Hour podcast!

I also got my hands on some new tools to make projects like this more approachable, and cannot wait to share!
