This Wood Carafe was made as birthday present to one of my second cousin in Canada.
It\s made from Beech and Burmesian Teak cut down for over 100 years ago. The carafe
is hollowed to a wallthicknes of 5 mm, sanded to 400 grit and treated with 2 layers of epoxoy.
The cups and top has got the same treatment. The carafe takes 6.5 dl.

Thanks for comments and looking.

Pretty sharp looking Carafe. Of course I had to Google Carafe to find out what it was…lol

I’m sure your cousin will cherish this gift. Well done….

I have not yet worked with teak, did you treat the inside with anything? If not will the teak prevent any type of liquid from sacturating the wood, like brewers pitch does? I was thinking about making some wooden wine bottles and was going to use the brewers pitch to seal the inside. I really like your design. Can I use it?

I like it! And what I really like is thinking about the process. All the steps involved, so many opportunities to mess it up. Excellent!
