This is one of my most satisfying projects. It’s made of ash and walnut. So far it has held up well and I’ve been using it for well over a month.

Very nice, I think every LJ should have one of these! What did u use to seal it?

Wouldn’t the heat cause the wood fibers to open up and turn black from the coffee? I too am curious as to what you sealed it with.

I used a salad bowl finish, I expected problems but so far there haven’t been any.

Oooh, I really like this. I love the smell of wood, but I don’t think I’d like the taste of it in my coffee. Any issues with that?

Nice cup. How did you attach the handle?

I went a little overkill when I attached the handle. I used akabond.

This just looks like a great hot chocolate mug to me. I could see a marshmallow floating around in it. But great coffee mug.

I like the cup but am curious as to what is ‘akabond’?
-- If you say 'It's good enough', it probably isn't.

It’s a structural two part epoxy. It’s rated for like 17,000 pounds of sheer load.
