Create a custom travel mug using your favorite wood or mixed media to produce a one-of-a-kind dramatic effect. Mugs can be turned from a solid piece of wood, a circular stave design, a staved cone or a segmented turning. Each one will give you the basic shape, while the staved design will create a greater or lesser level of difficulty with flat stock. 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. Finished mugs make great gifts and are guaranteed to generate conversation around the office.

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.

Don't know why I spent so much time and energy making the wood for such a cheap piece of hardware. There is pretty much no insulation. Put ice water in it and it sweats. Put hot coffee in it and it gets cold. The lid is cheap. There is no external indication of where the mouth hole is, you have to visually look at the lid. If I make another tumbler it will not be with this kit.
I've made a number of these and the results were 'beautiful' - as stated by the recipients. The one I kept for myself does not seal well and leaks when drinking from the mug. I wonder if there is a replacement seal that could be offered to resolve this issue.? ? ?
I got this for a Christmas present. I had a great time turning the outer shell but the quality of the wood was 100 times greater than the lid. Save your money and buy a cheap travel mug somewhere else, recycle the outer portion and turn a new one. I know it is a waste but is cheaper and you get a better product.
16 oz stainless steel travel mug leaks!
Beautiful idea, but the contents inside drip when lid is secured and closed!
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.
