Advice for wooden beer mugs

03-01-2011 03:37 AM by Mark Edmondson | 9 comments »

Hi everyone. I would like your advice on a process problem. I’m looking to make 40-50 cylindrical wooden beer mugs with handles.To make the body, I plan to turn out a long cylinder on a lathe, then cut it down to length. The I’ll drill the center out with a big forstner bit on a drill press. (I don’t have the capabilities to center drill this on my little lathe) From there, I’ll rout a flat spot to glue on the handle. My questions: Is there a better way to do this? I though I’d finish the outside with polyurethane, and the insides with beeswax. Good idea? Do you have any experience with this? Thanks everyone!
