Sawdust is my addiction
Thanks, the best deal I could find with the stainless steel inserts I was looking for was good ole walmartVery nice! I especially like the checkerboard design. Where did you find the travel mugs?
Thanks buddy!! I've been lurking here all along just haven't posted much, well actually haven't been building much, till about 2 months ago I herniated a disc in my lower back which kept me from my regular job pouring concrete... so while in recovery I get to "work" :yes: in my shop, (my real joy)That's some fantastic work there Ernie. Absolutely gorgeous.
Great to see that you're still at it.
The outside has one coat of boiled linseed oil and then 3-4 coats of Minwax Polycrylic, comes in a spray can. I've learned to really like the spray can process for small items like this. :thumbsup: They have a stainless steel insert so hot beverage doesn't contact the wood. Then the outside has to be handwashed, NOT in a dishwasher.Very nice!!! This has probably been covered before but I was wondering about finish that would protect the mugs from hot drinks. They are quite beautiful.
Thank you thank you!!Those are awesome! Very nice. Takes a basic travel mug and turned it into something very classy.
Thanks for the kind words!Very impressive. I really like them a lot. I no longer have access to a lathe and I can't wait until I can add one to my shop. I really miss turning. I am curious though. How is the elm to work with? The reason I ask is because I have quite a bit of old growth elm from some old barns I have dismantled. I have yet to do anything with it. I have been skeptical due to the fact I have never worked with it, and it isn't a specie you here much about us working with. Can you compare to another specie that is more commonly worked with? Maybe I just need to go pick some of it out and do something small with it.
Oh golly, my wife got that for me prolly 15 yrs ago, and I added the date stamp that clamps on the side 3 yrs ago. I got the date add on from Rockler and I'm kinda thinking thats where my wife got the stamp originally also.this is nice stuff man. where'd you get that stamp from?
