    When I need a ptn for a set of coasters I get 2 types, 1 is the ptn and the second is a vector file.
    I take the ptn and trace the lines I thinks will give me a good picture. That way I can set the depth I want
    for the 1/4" coasters. I use a 1/16", 1/32" depth. I then paint the lines to match the colors I need.T
    he Phillies baseball coasters was traced for a file picture I imported in to trace.
    The Eagle was trace right off the ptn, since the vector file was too busy for a 60 deg. V bit. I had to remove some of the lines
    myself.
    You really can't use a carved ptn on a coaster, it could leave a unsmooth surface and you don't know what they are going to place
    on the coaster.
    see the attached
    I hope this helps

    Perry,

    Do you paint the lines then sand off excess or do you just paint within the lines. Also are you just cutting this with a table saw and do you use any special blade?

    I paint the lines most of the time, if I have to paint inside the lines, I sand off the excess of the lines, then paint between
    the lines and spray a high gloss sealer for looks.
    I cut the 4 coasters with my table saw with a thin blade. It cuts the coaster material very easly.
    I use a 8" x 8" piece in my sled and let her rip.
