These have been doing well for me, but somehow forgot to make some of the red, white & blue ones.(my best seller) not sure how i forgot.

First ones are red cedar
Second ones are poplar
Third ones are blue pine
forth ones are old oak
Fifth picture is a black walnut & mahogany

Thanks for looking

How do they do with hot liquids or are they only good for hoisting a beer? I could see you making a killing on these selling them to ren faire folk.

Those are extra nice. I think the cedar are my favorites. Are those dishwasher proof?

Very nice!!!! Monte , that ten faire comment was right. Folks pay a fortune for wooden mugs. The last one I bought was $70 about 10 years ago. I’m curious about your pricepoint.

-- Thanks for all the lessons!
