Tell us about yourself!
I have made a similar cup, but when it was filled with hot coffee, the different woods expanded differentially, causing leaks. Until now I have not found a food-safe finish which is stable under very hot water.
Great idea, and excellent instructions. Well done!I think we have to differentiate between a one-time build (where all the ugly details can be recessed and hidden with wooden plugs), and multiple builds (where some compromises have to be made between appearance and flexibility).
