We designed some coasters last year, asked a man with a machine to laser them for me in Oak… when he had finished, he said ‘all done, only I couldn’t get oak, so we used bamboo’ …well we do like I bit of environmentally friendly grass; but it’s not very English, the New Forest is not exactly famous for it’s swathes of bamboo!
So earlier this year, we had a chance meeting with another man with a machine. ‘Oak?’ we asked. ‘No, but we can do Alder’
Now, Alder doesn’t mind getting it’s feet wet1, so that seemed appropriate for coasters!
This fox is the most popular of the images, some people just buy a set of these
This stag is the second most popular; other people mix and match the coasters
Selling these singularly means you can have a set of 5 if you want
There are 8 designs in total (so far)
1 Alder doesn’t mind water; it is said to hold most of Venice up
Coasters are £4.50 each
If you buy 6, you can have a free box (made of bamboo), whilst stocks last.
