New handle for my favorite mug

Had a bit of whimsical fun with this one. I got the idea of a saw handle on a coffee mug, but it took me quite a while to figure out the best way to attach it without the mug slipping out and making it as easy as possible to take the mug out to clean it. (I actually use it – this is not a display piece). So I came up with the built in coaster.

The handle and coaster are both walnut. All of the hardware is brass. I used the Wheeler Madden & Clemson (w/ Holden Patent) handle template originally from TGIAG Toolworks (tgiag.com), but that site seems to be gone now (redirects to an online pharmacy???).

I made a silly YouTube video, not my usual “how to” style, if anyone is interested.

For a beer can, it would be really cool if there was a mechanism to pull a spring-loaded hammer that can be released by trigger to punch the can open without using the lift tab

You’d just want to make sure it wasn’t too shaken up!
