Yeah you want a birch goblet, I can’t imagine what refreshing beverage you would be drinking in it?...not sure my finish would hold up to white lightning or whatever that stuff you tough guys down there drink….
No stain was used…soaked with nut oil….never really stain any turnings have used colored dyes…

You do some really nice work Jeffry! This is sweet!
My mug leaked due to a little knot in the side! So it’s now a pencil holder!
Thanks for sharing!
