I posted this mug last week a little premature. I had not applied a final finish on it and nor had I rounded over the handle (which I heard about :-)). I have now applied 4 coats of Wipe on Poly and buffed the inside and outside with the Beall Buffing System. The pictures don’t show it, but this thing really shines now.

The first three pictures are of the new and improved mug and the 4th picture is the before version. I have decided to keep this one strictly for decoration and will not attempt to use it for holding liquids.

Very attractive—your additional attention to smoothing and finish really paid dividends.

that looks really great, so if you were to use a food safe finish, it would be just fine for a mug, i have a walnut bowl i eat out of, i wash it with hot water and soap, dry it and set it out on my kitchen counter…

Nice finish and detail. The extra work sure highlighted the grain. That’s the hardest part sometimes. I know what you mean by setting aside the first of everything, I have a house full of them.
