My son sent me some pictures of the renaissance style mugs I made for them. I forgot to take pictures of them before I put them in the mail. These differ from the mugs I posted earlier in that I used four different woods to make these. These are made by alternating oak, maple, cherry, and walnut segments. The handle of one is made of walnut and the other maple.

Nice. What finish do you use on them, and how does it hold up over time?

Thanks for the kind comments everyone, I really appreciate your input.

don 1960, I used three coats General Finishes Salad Bowel finish to seal them and to make them food safe.

terry603, the hard part is figuring out a procedure to make the first ones. After you have that figured out, actually putting them together isn’t that big of a deal.

These are beautiful. I’ve seen mugs made of wood in the past and have heard they have a tendency to leak. How do these hold up?

Andrew, the mugs haven’t been used yet so I don’t know what to expect. I have just figured out another faster method of making these so stay tuned:)

Awesome mugs. I love pieces that make me think “how the heck do you make that?” Maybe your I’ll learn as I explore your other projects. Thanks for sharing!
