I'm Alex, the owner and sole woodworker of RPG coasters. I live with my wife, little daughter and our two dogs in a town near Madison, Wisconsin.
RPG coasters started as a Kickstarter campaign after I wanted to make some coasters for our 5th Ed D&D group. I'm not an artist really, I love drawing but it's usually machine parts instead of sweet swords. So I scoured the internet for an artist to coerce into making me some artwork for the coasters. I found some of Dan Warren's work and tracked him down. After talking to him, he was up for the task at hand. With the artwork in hand I set about making the coasters on my homemade CNC router.
The coasters were received well by the group and they convinced me they could be a product. I talked to Dan about the possibility of making a lot more artwork and he was up for it. Apparently a lot of other people liked them enough to make the campaign a success.
