8 hickory staves, about 7/8” thick, cut at 22.5º, glued, and turned
I’ve always heard that having a pretty model model makes things more attractive. You have to admit she is kind of cute!
This is my second mug, but first staved turning, and another step in my segmented turning journey. It was interesting fun project, and I have a nice mug to show for it. The glue up was a little harder than anticipated and things went a little oval, but there was plenty of wood to turn it down.
I definitely recommend checking out other sources for the inserts rather than paying $10 or more for this type. Look for one with a screw on lid and an outer plastic sleeve that you can remove and replace with wood. The snap in O-ring lids on these are not very secure and they get leaky after only a few uses.
Thanks for stopping by to look.
