My wife helps organize and attends a “Faith Crafters” 4 day event,, and asked me if I would make a give away prize.

I had some cherry salvaged from a local cabinet building shop.

Took about 6 hours total.
cutting the rings:
gluing the segments into rings:
Flattening the rings:
gluing the rings on top of each other:
Hollowing the inside:
shaping the outside:
finishing: which I tried CA glue finish like pens… worked great.
reverse chuck, and finished bottom. with name and wood.

I do need to figure out a more polished look for putting name and wood on the bottom of my projects.

Very nice. Did you use one of the stainless inserts to make the inside food safe?

I did use one of the stainless steel inserts… I have bought in kit form,,, but lately I buy the stainless steel mug for 5:00 from Big Lots,, or 3.00 from local Christian book store. Remove screw from bottom of mug,, and pull of plastic shield, and you have what is in the kit.

You don’t need any inserts, most all finishes are food safe when cured. Shellac and alcohol will not work!
But most are not dishwasher resistant!
