So when i got home i ordered a set of small holds and started to think what to do with them.
I came up with the idea of making a set of mugs with climbing holds as the handles.
Step 1: Tools and materials.
- Chisel (it doesn't have to be rusty like mine.)
- sander (i had a belt sander, i think that's best)
- An angle grinder would probably work well too (i don't have one.)
- Files and sand paper.
- Climbing holds (small)
- epoxy resin.
- screws or hex bolts
Step 2: Removing the handles.
Hit it forcefully but not too hard.
The handle will either break off nearly all the way to the bottom or somewhere in the middle of the handle.
Then turn the mug over and strike the handle with the chisel again to remove the bottom section of the handle.
You may get some little bits left sticking out. You can try and remove it with the chisel until they are smaller.
Then get out your belt sander or angle grinder and remove the last little bits of the handle.
Be careful not to sand the glaze off the mug.
