A few more mugs for friends….everyone seems to only want Walnut.I use General Finishes Enduro-var water based urethane. This stuff is very thin lots of runs to contend with, I may try spraying next time.

Nice! My uncle wants me to make him one of these like we saw at the Texas Renaissance festival. Did you cut vertical segments and glue them together then finish rounding on the lathe, then attach a handle? Or how is the process done if you don’t mind me asking?

Great Idea, looks like you found a way to get better use of small pieces of wood in the shop. I need to learn how to do this.

Thanks guys,They are vertical segments and the bases are segments and the handle is mounted on with epoxy.I make up the base and cylinder separately then flatten the base with a drum sander and true up the cylinder with my chop saw and glue them together then turn.
Todd, I called GF and they told me that Euro-var is food safe. I use to use salad bowl finish but I cannot get it around here anymore

Well done Viince, good looking batch of mugs. Do you pin the handle to the mug, or just epoxy it directly to the mug?

Those are gorgeous. I have been wanting to do something like them and just can’t seem to find the courage to get started. Than may have changed now.

I like the look. I assume that you make them on the lathe? Great job.

Thanks for the comments everyone.Bill I was originally going to pin the handles on the first mugs I made in the past but didn’t. It’s been 5 years since and the epoxy is doing fine.
Monty, I do turn them on the lathe.
