Pretty cool. I also like the coffee cup. will it hold a soda can or would a bottom need to be added?
I really like my Dr. Pepper.
Great job and blog.

I really like this build. Am going to “favorite” it! Pretty impressive thought process. I’ve used the microwave to dry small pieces of wood, but never considering using it to steam.
How many cycles in the microwave, and how long did each cycle last?

Toxicoval56, I designed it to fit my mug, but it would be easy enough to glue in a circular bottom.
Darrell, somewhere between fifteen and five minutes, longer at first, shorter after it was softened. Keep flexing it back and forth, into a tighter loop each time. Keep the rag wet.

When I first saw the primary photo before reading the title, I thought what a classy way to mount and display walking canes. I’ve been trying to figure a way to make a grouping of 3 of my canes to hang on the wall and every idea always ‘looks’ ugly. I wonder if this could be done on a smaller scale. What a concept.

Spoontaneous, I think this would be a really cool way to display canes. If I were to make a three-way holder, I’d glue up three circles, a little smaller diameter than what I have here but with slightly thicker walls. Then I’d make a tablesaw sled that would hold the circles at the correct angle and position and make flat spots. Glued together the flats would become mitres and the overall profile would look like the club symbol from playing cards.

There would be very few people not on this web-site that would appreciate this, but that’s funny and awesome!
