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...:rofl::rofl:

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

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

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