Easy modifications make it better
Stainless Steel 16 Ounce Travel Mug Turning Kit
I have made 2 of these so far. Both of them, the lids "dribbled". To correct this I carefully removed the stainless steel ring from the plastic top. This reveals a hollow plastic inside, which I filled with FDA Silicone (type 1). This solved the dribble and is far more sanitary since the cavity cannot trap liquid and breed bacteria. The second mug I made, I drilled the center out to Ø 3" ID, then put some minimal expanding foam (small amount), and used silicon on the lip and clamped in vise for 24 hours. Rub the silicon off once cured and I have an insulated walnut coffee cup. Oh yea, I used CA for a finish, it is tricky to do because of the large surface area, but doable.
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Made with Product
Have used others that were not of uniform sizing and thus required individual unit by unit sizing, these permitted dulication of dimensions and consistant fitting.
I would buy this mug again
I take coffee every day in this mug
Made two of these using walnut and maple solid pieces. Turned, sanded and ready for finish in a couple of hours. Made great Christmas gifts.
Better than earlier version
Grass Valley, CA
I use the travel mugs as gifts to members of the family with a caution on their use. The lids on first group of mugs that I bought did not fit tightly, and if filled and turned upside down, the lid came close to coming off. Woodcraft did exchange them for a set with a tighter fitting gasket. I will caution those who receive them to check the fit of the lids periodically as described above. A screw-on lid would make a better product. Also, in the enclosed instructions for building the wooden shell, I question the wisdom of running the 8 inch glue-up through the planer.
I loved it. PLEASE put it on sale...
I will buy more, but would totaly LOVE to to find them on sale SOON !!!!!!!

Walnut travel mug
The mugs will be used as gifts and a few will be sold at a craft show. Fun to make as no two are the same.
sizes are different
I ordered 16 liners. 6 then 10 pieces. I first made two coffee cups. No problem. Then I turned 8. This is when I found the liners I received were three different sizes. The largest were all marked with a "X" on the bottom.
Turned coffee travel mug a hit
So far I've turned and given away 7 coffee travel mugs using Butternut, Elm and Walnut burl. Always the same wow type reaction.
good turning project, need more variety of stock wood for this size of project.
