Double sided MAN coaster

This was an award for MAN Growth at a gathering of friends to give each other man awards.  The event focused on all of our unique talents; mine being LEGO creations.

At first, I wanted to do a bonsai tree, but after seeing that a bunch have been done already, I lost some steam.  I also wanted to give the creation away, so 1) I didn’t want to spend $50 in parts and 2) I wanted to make it simple enough that the receiver would enjoy it.

I had recently put together a similar creation of the logo as a thank you gift for helping me win the online LEGO competition.  It got a lot of praise from the members, and some even asked for instructions on how to build their own.  So, I put some together here.

Since I put the instructions out there for that logo, I took the time to create instructions for this man coaster too.  It’s about 175 pieces and you should be able to get all the parts for about $8 or less.  I put this together in a couple of hours and I’m a fan of its weight and size (about 4″ x 4″).  The word “MAN” is written on both sides, so it works well as a display piece/paper weight, or it’s intended purpose as a beer coaster.
