Here are a few projects I cleaned up today. Two more awls with hardened tips and cartridges embedded in the top. One is spalted beech with a 12 gauge shell in it and the other is hard maple burl with a 44 Mag shell in it. They are finished with clear lacquer.
The mug is made of corian just to see if I could do it. This same process could be used for a wooden mug, but I would not put coffee in the wooden one. It is turned from 7 layers and I could not hide the seams on this piece. The design is such that the OD of the mug is exactly the same as my 3” drum on my spindle sander. The reason for that is so the handle matches it perfectly when I sanded it with that 3” drum.
The handle is doweled into the mug with brass dowels and here is how I spotted and drilled them:
It is sanded to 400 and then buffed with tripoli and white diamond
