Anything can be made in a steampunk style.  Just a matter of what you do with it.

Sure. Doilies are Steamy, and coasters are doilies in cork form.
If they look lacey, I suppose...

could always lay a doily over the cork and spray paint it than remove the doily leaving the pattern showing in cork

I think a more appropriate question is why would coasters not be Steampunk.  I'm unsure how I would justify ruling out any type of tableware,  when clearly most accessories we know of were present for many centuries including the 19th. C. And Steampunk is just a retrofuturist adaptation of 19th C. aesthetics....

 What are all you blokes doing going on about doilies  Wink Cheesy Shocked

On a serious note , my  first thought was  Steampunk/ Dieselpunk images glued on  to cork and lacquered over. Then it went to  metallic spray paint.

 Though glued on  curtain net / lace / doily / table cloth etc lacquered over  could be effective. Cork could then be cut into any shape to suit.

  Either  furnishing remnants, cheap table ware  or op shop finds would be suitable .  Many such items have  medallion patterns or borders , including flowers,  birds, animals, houses,  boats  and all manner of designs , that would be ideal for  cutting out and gluing.

altho a bit cliché , how about a cog made of one of those art clays. a center with a cork surface and a felt or cork underside. paint it metallic with a colored pinstripe or hub of some sort. make them stackable and they should work out just fine. sign up for a ceramics class and make a few of them for yourself. a color glaze would make them look quite fancy.
haqve a small hole in the center and have them store on dowel pegs on a board so the teeth mesh and you can turn one to turn them all. it will give the human larvae something to do while the grown ups conflagrate.

I was thinking of coasters along this line.  A roundish object with a base for the cork disk to be afixed that you place your drink on.   What happens on that roundish object would be the steampunk bit.

I immediately thought "Roller Coasters" and got a little excited. Oh well.
