Project Information

I have a good supply of scrap hardwood and need something to occupy my time since my retirement. These started as gifts and now I'm in the shop at daylight and wonder where the day went. Everyone is different and you can drink from it.. Started doing logos,bad idea, now I'm covered up!

Greetings from the socialist capital of America - California.
Why do you think they call it the 'left coast'?

Would like to see more about the 'logos

I like it. I happened to come into a couple of truck loads of cutoffs (12' strips varying thickness and widths from 1" to ~4") and this is another good idea to use up that wood and learn something in the process. Couple of questions
1) how did you cut the centers out
2) what kind of finish are you using on them.
3) Have you tried something hot in them (coffee/Tea)

Thanks

My finish is 2 part epoxy (2 coats) on the inside. 4 coats of hand rubbed poly on the outside and a final coat of wax on outside after curing for a week. It takes about a week to make with all the drying, sanding,sanding and more sanding. Haven't found a way to shorten the time nor do I want too. That's why my name is Danal,lol !
I can post some of my designs and will do so but just learning the ways here. Had to get a friend to show me how to post PICS . Leary of putting my logos on site even though I hand carve or burn on each mug without using any copyright insignas and there usually gifts. I use different combinations of wood and sometime one piece, most of my handles are applied but sometime I carve from one piece if possible.

Thanks for the nice comments, I'll try and post some more soon. Just starting Backgammon board with table and drawer I promised last Christmas. Yes, you can drink coffee, tea, mixed drinks and of course…beer. An admirer was looking one of my mugs over and said with a serious look "Will a beer can really fit in here"? Oh well, guess I'll head to the workshop!

don´t you dare putting an alu can in there
you know very well a beer has to be poured cold with the right speed
to build up just the right layer of foam on top so you can enjoy
both the smell and taste before it is swollowed through to the stomack ….. LOL

once more thanks for sharing …. enjoy the use … cheers
