Coffee mug holder

My mother in law had been wanting a coffee cup holder to hold some mugs she got at a pottery show but has not been able to find anything she likes that is the right size for these mugs. For Christmas I decided to make her one from some bocote stock I had. I turned the four arms to be simple and effective. They each have a very small contour to them to help hold the cups in place. Finished with BLO.

Fun little project!

That should do the job of holding the mugs….She will certainly appreciate the gift…..I’ve made a bunch of mug holders for gifts, family and to sell….I use Shaker pegs, and 6 cups can be hung on it…..They do make nice gifts….!!

That’s guys! It was a fun little project! I’m trying to make the whole family gifts this year so this is just one of many (see the toy excavator, pepper mills pens, and tissue boxes I’ve posted)

Such a thoughtful gift that is not only handmade but custom-made as well! It is never easy getting storage that is of the size you truly need. Having one customized is the only way to go.

This is a really cute coffee mug holder, but it would make more sense if you could fit more on the hanger right? That would make it a lot more useful since you could have more cups stowed away, no?

She wanted it specifically for 4 matching cups she got at a pottery show so it was size accordingly.
