Decided to do something different with turning a mug. This mug is made up of segmented paduak and hard maple. Blanks were cut at 22 1/2 degrees and glued back up. The bottom plug is quilted maghoney left over from a cradle project. The mug insert was purchased at Woodcraft. I sanded the mug up to 2000 grit and sealed it with CSA light set glue and resanded again up to 2000 grit and applied high speed friction polish. The interior of the mug was sealed up with low expansion foam sealer and finally the mug insert glued in with epoxy glue.

That is way cool and unique. Better put a GPS tag on it so you can keep track of it!

Eyecatching hardly starts – Nice wood combination.
Often caught myself looking at those sort of turnings but just can’t imagine all the repetetive cuts and glue ups.
I’d love to make a couple of those for us. Looks like another trip to Woodcraft in the near future…
Thanks for sharing.
