Thanks woodshaver for your thoughts. I make only mugs as you can see by my posts. I am having a great time learning the best finishes and welcome any comments and helpful suggestions. After reading numerous articals and input from fellow LC’s, I am comfortable with my finishes. I use 2 part epoxy for my insides only. Saw your post on your mug and looks great. Try mixing the epoxy for about 4 minutes at least 75 degrees. Pour aduquet amount into mug and use a foam brush to pull liguid up sides and leave some in bottom, it helps seal the glue up at bottom seam and let cure for at least 24 hours. Sand any roughness with steal wool and apply anouther coat. The second coat will be slick as glass. By you using a soft wood, it may take another coat. I’ve built over 100 mugs and shot glasses and it works and yes it is food safe. Have you ever ate an M@M? Just make sure it cures for about a week. I will post more pics when I get back from a show this weekend. Hope I’ve helped. I make most of my mugs from hardwoods but cedar and cypress will finish as well.

Nice mug, why do you mix the epoxy for 4 minutes? Does it allow for a faster set time?
