Mug/ beker

June 14, 2013


Last year my neighbor offered me her old apple tree it had to go it was rotten, half of the inside was soft


The other half of this piece I could use, hopefully I can get more beker’s out of the tree.


Turned the outside shape on the lathe


Drilled a hole of 35 mm, and started to hollow it out by hand with a hook knife, took the work outside and spend a few hours on a beautiful beach.


Pwllcrochan you can only go there at low tide and you have to climb down a rope to get there, pretty steep!


And a lot of sanding



Made the edge quite thin


I finished the beker with warmed up tung oil.
