UPS No picture No picture No picture No picture No picture

Had this small block of dark chocolate Walnut just sitting on a shelve forever. Probably picked it up or moved 100 times knowing someday it would find a home. A friend that works for UPS and wears nothing but brown asked me to make him a Beer mug. Bingo! The sap wood has worm holes and I couldn’t make myself cut it out, besides how do you make UPS attractive? Delivered it yesterday over a beer and got 4 more orders. My logos are not stencils but about 3 hours of burning. Even though I don’t like to paint or dye my wood, the customers like it to be original. Thanks for looking.

Does this mug get used during business hours???

Thanks , I keep trying to get my shop setup to do some jewelry boxes and gammon boards but I’m getting lots of mug orders. Good problem but I don’t charge enough. I’m sure none of you do that LOL. Appreciate the approvals
