Here is another Christmas Present,, this one I made for my wife… I have to do that or she takes away shop time. :-)
She used it during Christmas but forgot to pre heat it,, to see if it works better than the plastic ones.
I bought mine at WoodCraft—————-> http://www.woodcraft.com/family.aspx?familyid=20158
, but have found them here as well → http://www.smoothturning.com/main.sc

I chucked it up in my jaw chuck, and then drilled out the center with the proper sized Forstner bit.
Then used my Hunter #4 to fit the wood to the insert.
Completed the turning with spindle gouge.
Signed the bottom, (( Lots of Room)) and sanded/finished.

This is made out of a 8 year old piece of Butternut.

Well done. I bet that makes the coffee taste better in the morning too.

That’s a really nice idea, Sheldon! I think I’ll have to make one. Thanks for the links!

That looks like it came out great.
I’ve seen the kit, but hadn’t taken the opportunity to order one yet. Gonna have to add it to the list!

Planning on making one of those myself – does it compare well – heat retention wise to the plastic and vacuum sealed stainless ones out there? Or is it more for the coolness factor and usability? (and perhaps Iced Coffee)

You did great on that. I bought one for a friend and I’m doing it out of Cherry. I just got stuck… I’ve no hollowing tools and my bowl gouge only let me get so far.

I used the biggest one I had, It was a bit smaller than the bottom of the Stainless Steel insert.
1 1/4”.
