This project was my first experience in turning these Travel Mugs offered in a kit by Woodcraft. This is a relatively new kit with a screw top lid. In our online ad, it states, “Create a custom travel mug using your favorite wood or mixed media to produce a one-of-a-kind dramatic effect. You can either turn the outer liner using a stave configuration or simply use solid wood blocks. Although this kit is for an experienced turner, you will find that the hollowing techniques are easy to execute, and the results are nothing short of amazing.
great for gifts and craft shows
I have made at least two dozen of these travel mugs. I have done them with staves and in segmented form. They sell out quickly and I have returning customers. They are a great project.
These are junk
I bought five of these for a business associate to give to clients after I added the turned wood, from a prized stock of really nice curly maple. Each one was returned because the lids don't stay on. They work for the first few days, then get loose and won't lock on. Catastrophic failure and spills are a certainty. Not just one, not just two, not three, not four...ALL of five that I bought failed. The pressure fit lids were far better.
great project cup
i have been using thes for quick easy projects. they are good sellers. any one can do these . i turn one out in about 1.5 hrs start to finish. everyone loves them, nothing like your own personal cup.
Makes a great gift for anyone! Looks great as well.
