Jeep themed drink coasters
 
I started making some novelty drink coasters and so far they've been a big hit.
I make these coasters in my spare time at work using the solid surface material known as Corian (it's a very common household counter top). I then CNC cut the design into it and fill it with a marine non-slip caulking. The end result looks pretty cool.

Take a peek, tell me what you think please.
I am selling them for $5 each plus ($5.15 shipping for up to six coasters, USPS flat rate box)

Edit:
This first post is in edit mode as I will try to keep an update available right here so folks won't need to scroll through a few pages to see them all, I did say try..;)

Thank you! Unfortunately I can't readily get those colors. This material is mainly a kitchen counter top. I don't think too many people have red, blue or silver counter tops.
I am just working with what I have laying around, this is just a spare time project.
Also, I have just learned that I am slightly pushing the envelope here on WF with this project. They are being kind enough to let me gauge the feedback and desire of these before needing to upgrade my membership for commercial use.
Obviously I am not making much money on $20 sales so we'll see what happens.
Thank you everyone for the comments (even the wide grill crack) and thank you WF for letting me get a "feeler".

I'm not sure, I have to probably replicate that design which might be tough. We'll see, right now I'm just trying to pop a few of these out to help save money for upgrades. I'm sure most of you can understand that.
If I have time I'll see what I can do later....thanks!

dvdsjk 02-08-2013 09:31 PM

Got them!!! Awesome!!! Let me know when you do white!!

Disheveledhair 02-09-2013 05:51 AM

Got these a couple days ago and loved them! Way better than the flimsy coasters I had!

Someone has already mentioned that to me. I am going to do some when I get a chance.
Had a little blizzard pass through this weekend to keep us occupied so things hit a speed bump.
I'll let you know when I have some..

thanks.

Ever thought about sizing some to fit in the drink holders on the jeep itself? I think that would be way cool. I've got four spots for cups on my LJ and I'd rather have the jeep protectors than the ones they sell with initials on them!!

Here's a picture of what I'm talking about. For some reason I can't post an attachemnt in a pm but I can in a general reply. Anyway, these are smaller coasters, about 2.5", that fit into the built in cups holders in the jeep. I've got 2 in the front of my center console and 2 in the back. As you can see they sell under the name "Car Coaster" among others.

Received mine today. They are better than expected. Nice work!

YJmaddness 02-16-2013 10:08 PM

Also interested in a yj version

bostiguy 02-17-2013 09:07 AM

I have three sets of four in the works, one spoken for.

EricsRubi 02-17-2013 05:21 PM

You can easily fit 9 on those slabs?

fan of fanboys 02-17-2013 05:24 PM

That's pretty cool

Not sure if that's a question or not but there is zero chance of fitting more. Those "slabs" are about 10"-11" and each coaster is a 4'" diameter. Trust me, I nest components onto sheet goods pretty much for a living. I know I can't fit more on there. What you see there is not a finished size. Outside of that ring is about a quarter inch more material when finished and I need to run a .375" bit to cut them out. I'll try to take a picture of them cut out and show you what I mean.
I appreciate the help, thank you.

I also want to note that I am shipping these out in USPS flat rate boxes and they cost $5.80 to ship (I previously said $5 shipping). I can fit up to 6 coasters in one box though.
I am eating the ridiculous Paypal fees so I don't want to also eat extra shipping, hope you all understand.

YJ's are pretty much spoken for as of now.thanks!

Have people send the money as personal gifts... You don't have to take out any money to use it :) just an FYI

I appreciate that info but then the buyer is not protected and it's kind of cheating the system.
I use Paypal for the convenience as do most so I will just pay the dues and complain a little.;)

EricsRubi 02-17-2013 09:40 PM

It's not really cheating the system cause it makes the buyer pay the extra fee

nicks_yj 02-18-2013 01:19 AM

How much for a yj theme and you said 6 of them per order?

hdb 02-18-2013 01:33 AM

I was going to ask the same thing about a smaller coaster to fit in the jeep cup holders. Dont know if you can only do one size but I may be interested.

$5 per coaster, $5.80 shipping for up to six. You can buy one if you'd like to but shipping is in a flat rate box ($5.80)
You can buy 1-100.
Right now I don't have anymore YJ style, I will post up when I have more.
thanks!

It's something I will try but don't know when yet. Can you guys tell me if these cupholders are the same as in a 2013 Rubicon?
My brother-in-law just bought one, I could use his for test fits. I only have my 2000 TJ. I'm not sure if mine are even the same that you guys are talking about. I have two in the center console, I think they are slightly different sizes.

hdb 02-19-2013 01:16 AM

I should have been specific, mines a tj with stock cup holders, its a 2005 (i dunno if they changed them since 2000)... ill have to measure them I think theyre both the same size

mtfisherim 02-19-2013 12:36 PM

I am interested in 6 of the non-YJ. Are you going to make JK? If not the TJ ones are nice. Prefer 3 white and 3 tan but let me know what you have available. No rush.
Thanks!

StanF 02-19-2013 02:08 PM

Would like a set of 4 White YJ. Please add me to the waiting list.
