Shaving mugs

Has anyone ever turned one?

Any pix available?

Any dimensions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You

Andy,
I haven't turned a mug, but I turned a brush and use an old fashioned safety razor. I use a ceramic mug for now. I would say to buy your soap you decide to use and then turn your mug. I have bought soap from a couple of different people on the net and the sizes vary.

I am kind of the other way around Mike. My wife is a soaper. I can have the soap in about any shape size I want. I am just kind of stuck as to what size / shape mug to make.

BTW - I saw your brush, I loved it, nice work.

Thank You

Andy

Hi,
My brother collects Old Spice and has a LOT of mugs.
In general, you should shoot for about 2-1/2 to 2-3/4 high and 3-1/4 to 3-1/2 wide. A small flair from the bottom to the top of about 1/8”. Standard soap is about 2-1/4” diameter.
Since yours is wood you may need vary the diameter some to make up for the thicker wood.
You can check out different styles here….
