THE STORY: This coaster was cut and laser printed from a piece of log reclaimed from one of the A16 shops shortly after the physical stores were closed. Each one has been hand made by me, which involved 16 separate steps* with the hope that it will inspire its user/s to explore and help preserve our planet's wilder places, both near and far away. -John D.
*Disclaimer. With the assistance of power tools. YES, 16 Steps, not including growing the tree. NO, 16 is not a complete coincidence. I add an extra coat of finish to get the step count to16.
They have a multi coated clear exterior finish to resist liquids and a natural cork back to help keep your coaster and/or glass from leaping off the table or bar top. This item is made from a Montana grown Lodge Pole Pine log that has been repurposed from a post used for many years in a A16 mountain ship location. Because of this, you should expect to find natural and other human or animal caused blemishes such as cracks, an occasional nail or bug hole, or a chip. If you're lucky, some bluing stain is visible. Bluing is caused by fungi which was initially transmitted by mountain pine beetles. Each coaster is a unique, one-of-a-kind piece of art.
