A co worker wanted to know if a coffee cup could be made from wood. So I went home and made a cup and a saucer (because, without a saucer, how do you cool your coffee?).

Cup is spalted maple – saucer is walnut. “Normal” coffee cup size.

What is your finish? Can it be used for coffee? Beautiful piece.
