Beech End Grain Cups
End grain turned cups designed for your daily use. These guys are great for drinking from, either hot or cold.
All hand turned on my new Japanese style lathe.
Beech finished with tung oil and waxoil
I would suggest that you avoid using these for anything with a high alcohol content ( such as wine or spirits) as this poses a cracking risk. If you want one for wine or spirits, get in touch and I can make one with a beeswax finish which is great for alcohol (but not for hot liquid)
While i test these with boiling water before selling them, you use them in this way at your own risk. Severe thermal shock can cause splitting
