Okay, I goofed. This was suppose to be the neck for a vase I was turning. It was the first piece I’ve turned in two parts. When I went to glue the two together the proportions were all wrong. The choice was fire wood
or something else. This is the result. 3” X 3 1/2 spanish cedar with a recessed blood wood bottom.
I know better than to put coffee in it, but it’s tempting. If anyone know of a good food safe lining I can apply,
let me know. Now that I’ve got my prototype, I want to go for a working model.
So here’s to ya, have a cup on me , have a great day, and thanks for looking.

Even if it came about by accident, that’s a nice pencil holder.

I told my wife she better open an ebay account and learn how to start selling stuff… Seeing this cup, just proves my point that much more!

Nice job! “When I was a kid”, in Kindegarten our teacher had us cut out pictures from a magazine and then use about 1 to 2 inch pieces of masking tape covering an entire bottle, but leaving a portion out so that the picture of the ship that I picked out of the magazine would be displayed on the side of the bottle. Then stained the tape on the bottle with a darkish woodstain. It looks really neat, even to this day, some 40 years later.

Your sectional cup reminded me of that bottle. sorry… lol!

Man now you got me curious, I wonder if you could use acrylic on the inside, or coat it with ceramic paint like that which would be used on a regular stoneware coffee mug? I wonder if it would stick. I bet if you roughed the surface up a bit, it would probably stick nice.

Have your say...
