Step 1: Materials
Not to much materials to make this bamboo cup:
3. Wood saw
Step 2: Cut the Bamboo
We need to cut the bamboo that have the big hole inside because it is easy to put the water and cut the width with 6.5 meters and the length with 16 meters ( but up to you, if you want to do bigger or smaller than this that's fine.)
Step 3: Sand the Cup
You have to sand the outside, inside and the edge of the bamboo and sand it from the smallest grit number of sand paper (80-320-1000) to the biggest grit number of sand paper and sand until it get very smooth.
Step 4: Shellac the Outside of the Cup
You have to put shellac liquid in the plate or bowl , put the brush into the water and take it to paint outside the cup. After you shellac finished you have to put the cup under the sunshine until it dry and after it dried you have to sand the 1000 grit of number again.
Step 5: Adding Beeswax
You must add a layer of beeswax inside the cup to protected from water.
Also, we use beeswax because it is natural.
