Pictured OK this is my very first Beer Mug made on a bandsaw, thanks to Monte and Tony for their help and demonstration on how to do this.
This mug was a special order and the customer wanted the logos on the sides of the mug, I used my colwood burner machine to make the logos.

Build I first viewed Tony’s video but instead of gluing blocks together I used the limb of a walnut tree and used the same process for making the mug. The handle was made from the round plug that I cut out of the center of the mug, by using my log jig, I secured the round plug via screws and cut a 1” width slice from the center of the plug thus eliminating waste, also instead of making the handle fit the round exterior of the mug I made a flat area on the mug it’s self with my 4” belt sander the handle mated perfect to the mug. The inside was finished in a two part 30 min epoxy from great planes.

It measures 5 3/4” x 3 1/2”

Thanks for looking and comments are always enjoyed.

Seeing how I like beer, I also like this mug. Wooden mugs do not keep beer cold for very long, so the only thing to do here is drink faster, and often.

Tony and Monte, I’m thinking for my next mug I’m going to make it from Mesquite.

Thanks Rockbuster, you’d think with the epoxy lining and the wood insulation around it, it would keep cold but I’m not a heavy beer drinker nor have I ever drank out of an wooden mug, you’d know more about this then I would. :)

Gee! I was just thinking the same thing Randy. Don, I think Randy has a good point here. Wood is like an insulation and it would keep your beer colder for longer I would think. Don you should make a mug and give it a test run! LOL!!!

Randy,

Nice work! I can’t see what’s written but I’m sure it’s got your touch. You keep on movin I’ll try to follow. :<)

Hey guys. It would be ok for warm beer. But you can make one that could hold a Styrofoam cup?

Very cool… Perplexed on the question of how quickly beer would warm by comparison to a glass mug… And the list continues to grow… Need more shop hours!! Great work and thanks for sharing…

Cool and good looking mug! Like the walnut, handle and the finish. I’m sure it will be a hit and more orders to come. Great work!

You used epoxy and you are drinking from these? I hope you aren’t selling these to people…

Richard, yes I am, but I’m using FDA approved epoxy now, but lets just say I was using box store brand, please enlighten me as to your reason about not selling them.
