This has to be my most requested project both on and off YT, so here it is…a coffee mug, with a handle.

The mug is made from a small apple log with plenty of burl, the handle is also made from burl but with a Pewter centre piece.

The mug is finished with Pure Tung oil, this oil is food safe and provides a very good water proof coating, the only downside is the time taken to apply in at least 5 coats and then around 4 weeks to fully cure, however once done it provides a very durable water proof coating that can sustain hot drinks etc and hand washing.

Pinecones have been falling left and right around my house lately, so I thought I’d turn a couple into salt and pepper shakers. The hardest part about this project was making them the same shape and size, but I mostly got it right!

  1. Nice work, very stylish. What are you using to gloss them up, is that an acrylic varnish? I like working with pine cones also, they make some pretty cool looking stuff 👌
