Very Fitting, since the birth place of the Marine Corps (Tun Tavern) was a bar! Great Job.

Ah yes, the famed seagull on a basketball with a hook shouting “go air force, go!” :)

I think I should run away now… (grin)

Seriously, nice job man. I wasn’t aware they has 22 ounce beers down there. Wouldn’t take too many of them to make a dozen.

Good project! The burning is dead on and finish complements your work. I’ve been away for awhile but will put some more of my mugs on site soon. Keep up the quality ART!!!

The burnings were a pain in the a$$. The oak would randomly burn hot in random places~ so, it was hard to make them as close to the same as possible…because of scorching

The finished mugs do look awesome BorgMC
