Here is a simple mug created with a scroll saw. I know many of you turners will say a lathe is a much better tool for making hallow vessels but I write a scroll saw blog so this is what I came up with. If anyone would like the pattern you can find it on my blog in my signature below. It holds about 16oz and I’m waiting for the finish to cure before I drink out of it. It did pass the leak test though. :)

-- Steve Good,

Cool! I never would have thought this was a scroll saw project.

That’s pretty ingenious. It’s simple but I love the idea of taking a tool to use an unorthodox technique to create something functional and fun.

Beautiful scroll saw project and very attractive choice of wood for the mug. What is the thickness of the rings and which glue has been used?

Thanks guys. The rings were 1/4” thick when cut but ended up a bit thinner after all the sanding. I used a clear drying PVA glue.

Steve. I notice you show a black border around your projects. If I’m looking at this right the black border really sets well with the black background to give a project a finished look. I just finished cutting out a dog on an 8 1/2×11 pc x1/8 baltic birch panel. I set it into a picture frame and was quite disappointed in it. The frame is too dominating and distracts from the picture. By itself without an edging it looks unfinished. I realize the pattern makers want to pass off comments in order to leave it up to the maker. But so far I need finishing ideas before going ahead with more of the scroll work

You don’t know this Steve but, you were the reason I started scroll sawing. Flip side of that is, I blame you for all my inadequacies at the saw! I want my money back :-)

Beautiful mug and thanks for sharing all you do.

That is really neat, Steve. How is the handle fastened? That is impressive that you did that on scroll saw!!
What wood did you use?
