this is my first attempt at a segmented turning, I thought I would start off simply with a straight sided vessel. so I bought a plastic travel mug with a stainless lining. the rings are made of pear and black walnut with a base of purple hart. for the handle I decided to have a go at making a small piece of plywood for strength out of pear and walnut with alternated grain. then carved it to shape with my foredom rotory tool. then the whole thing is coated with clear epoxy to waterproof it

That looks great. The pear and walnut go great together.

A gorgeous item.

I also bet it took many more hours than you expected it to when you started it.

Doesn’t every project do that? I always start out with “Hey cool idea I can make in an afternoon!” Then many afternoons later it is eventually completed.

Nice work vinceuk, I’ve been wondering how to try out making a nice wood cup that is safe to drink from.

thanks, yes it definitely took longer than expected, and quite a steep learning curve but that’s the fun bit
