Hopefully these photos turn out. After seeing many of you guys build super-cool mugs, i thought i’d give it a shot. I received a digital bevel gauge for Christmas and ran straight out to the TS to see how it worked. Takes out all the guess work & makes a guy look pretty slick.

Enjoy the pics. 12 segments on each mug. 1/2 thick stock, 9 3/8” tall, segments are 1 1/4” wide with 15 degree bevel.

Looks good. I am in the process of building a bunch myself.

Good looking mugs, but I think you need to put a handle on them, after you fill them with beer, you will need
both hands to lift them otherwise. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks folks for the comments. They do, in fact, have handles on them. For some reason the photo’s cropped in really tight when i posted them on here.

I’ll have to look at getting some better pics posted up.

Very nice and the 12 sides gives a it character. What finish is going on the inside? I’m visiting site more and glad to see more mugs. Feel free to ask any questions and I will share my experiences. Not an expert but 200 or so mugs and still learning and there’s no book on this yet!

Danal, the outside is just a few coats of poly, but the inside is 3 coats of “Watco” butcher block finish. It’s FDA approved for food contact once cured. Make sure with the Watco finish you do use 3 coats. The first one will make you think it’ll never get there, the second is still rough and dull, but the 3rd finally brings on a nice shine & smooths itself out nicely.
