Hi Denis, what’s the wood, do you really use them as shot glasses, and how did you get the pattern on the outside?

Hello John, it is apple tree.
In fact, I don’t use them as shot glasses, but they are ready to be used. I have made the pattern on the outside with a half-round cutter.

I made a couple of shot glassed size cups in the past, one from spalted birch and one from elm that I egg-shelled. I recently coated them with clear epoxy inside and out. This seals the wood away from any liquids. I use the elm cup for my weekly drink of cognac. A quick rinse with luke warm soapy water (if needed) and a quick towel-out to dry it and I’m good for next time.

These just cannot be used for anything hot (coffee, tea, etc) or cold (iced drinks). While the epoxy protects the wood from moisture, it will not protect from temperature expansion and contraction. This will eventually crack the epoxy and then it’s no good for liquids.

-- There are rarely any mistakes made in turning, but there are a lot of on-the-fly design modifications!
