Nice work. Looks great!

Did you turn it or cut the appropriate angles and glue it together, or both?

Thanks Brad. Both. I cut and glued together the segments for the bottom, the first ring of vertical “stripes” and the first thin ring of leopardwood. I glued those rings together them turned. I then glued the long vertical stripes (cherry and poplar) into a ring, glued them to the previously turned section then turned again. Finished up by gluing the top three rings together then glued them to the previously turned piece and turned one more time. This method just kept me from having to turn so deep into the inside of the mug. That’s probably not the textbook way to do it but for a rookie turner like me it seemed like it would be easier than putting the whole thing together and then start turning.
Thanks for looking.
