My biggest sellers on my etsy shop are these wooden steins. They are all turned from air-dried logs. I use progressively bigger forstner bits in my tail-chuck to hog out most of the material on the inside then I finish smoothing the interiors with my bowl scraper. The far left one is birch with a maple handle. The next one to the left is ash with an ash handle. The remaining three are sweet gum with a lacewood handle (middle one) and cherry handles. They hold anywhere from 14-24 oz of frosty adult beverage. I use two-part food-safe epoxy to seal the inside and prevent leakage since they endgrain is designed by mother nature to move liquids.
