              take some grinding wheels put them in some pipe a little larger than wheel and the fill pipe with some pour on epoxy (bar coat) will dry clear and you can see the wheel and it last a long time, sounds like it would work

                  that would make a cool coaster.
                  you could use a large paper cut too just cut off the top1" set it on foil with the disk in the center, fill with epoxy then cut off the cup after. one clear disk with a disk in it.
                  the pipe would be easyer though, and add some steel to the project.

                        i could make one of those coaster holders out of steel plus i could throw the coasters including holder off a cliff and they would still look like new . i coud make a piece of plate with bars coming up and have some of those stick on chair pads on the bottom of it so it wont scratch up the glass on the coffee table or anything. gotta talk to my g-pa cause he builds airplanes and keeps resin and stuff in a good supply. its pretty cool to help and see the stuff hes built even if most of its made of fiderglass. in fact my dads gonna have some scrap steel plate off a big computers case about 1/16 inch thick that hes scrapin that he said i could have woohoo free custom coasters . thanks for all the ideas guys

                        p.s. hope to see the table pics soon when u gat the chance
