    And so it begins

    While some sat and watched some silly sports event I got started on this years run of mugs.
    1 the scrap wood from cutting out parts for a few benches
    2 more of the scraps
    3 the wood for the benches one maple one oak
    4 5 and 6 first pass done every thing has been jointed and run through the saw to get a 22.5 on one side.
    7 and 8 the pile after it was all ripped up every thing has been ripped to 1 5/8" with a 22.5b on both sides.
    Now I will cut them to length and glue them up.

    Busy guy, eh?

    Nice to see these are coopered mugs, and not made on one of those silly spinny things...

    What are you using for banding on them - bent wood, or metal/wire bands? Just curious.

    I'm (barely) between projects, so I spent the day cleaning up the shop. It hardly looks like it, but really, I did!

    With a little luck, I'll be ankle deep in shavings and sawdust by this time tomorrow.

    Gee, I'd use a spokeshave - They'd be more 'authentic' that way!

    Each mug takes 8 pieces 8" long. How many mugs are sitting on that table saw?

    Actually, with a jig set up to hold them - like using the lathe as a Holder, but not a 'finisher' - I'd think a sharp spokeshave would round off the corners just/almost as fast as turning them. Couple minutes per...
