WOW! Great lookin' mugs! Nicely done!
I think that's a good plan. Thats what I do. Coating the whole entire inside with Brewer's Pine Pitch is total overkill...and [would be] a complete mess. I don't actually think it can be done. I'm not kidding. It hardens almost instantly. If you pour in the bottom, do it quickly and call it a day. I don't see how you could put in the mug and coat the inside. There is no way to use a tool to do it...you would have to dump a bunch in and roll the mug. Complete mess, I would think. I think your plan is wise. I've been doing this with zero problems and no leaks. Best wishes!
Sound great. I'm just so impressed with this design....thanks again for the inspiration! You should have taken top prize with this....
I really wanna do this, but I think it's gonna take 7 to 10 hrs to print one of these....Its a fantastic idea, but probably the best is to find someone to make a mold and then do injection molding. Hmmmmmm. I really want to do this on my fence! Such a great idea. This is a solid kickstarter idea. Have you thought about selling it? I think you should.....
The pine pitch is really tricky. You wanna pour it in slowly to the bottom. Just a little bit to just cover the bottom [~1/4" or so]. That's it. Definitely do not put on the outside. It will be game over. Just put your favorite lacquer or rub on the outside. I trusted my gluing with titebond for the inside sides and outside. Never a leak. If you are concerned, you could schmear pine pitch all over the inside. But! it's a serious mess and it dries very fast. Again, I just put on the bottom...all good. :) I hope this helps! Best wishes! post pictures!

You could do that, indeed. That said, it really is simple to router it when assembled for the top lip and bottom. Best wishes! Can't wait to see it when finished! :)

so sorry for the late reply...I'm using brewers pine pitch only now...works great. https://www.townsends.us/products/brewers-pitch-bp293-p-373
so sorry for the late reply....yes, use a harder, more dense wood like oak or maple.... best wishes
so sorry for the late reply! Nicely done Ralph! Looks amazing.
Sorry for the late reply 2 years later! Yikes...I need to check this website more often! I think Pine is too soft....a hardwood would be best like Oak, Walnut, Beech, Maple, or Mahogany....best wishes!
Wow!! Nicely done Ralph! Thanks for the great tip! :)

Wow! Nice lookin' mugs! Excellent job.....
Please post a pict when done! and...let me know if there were parts of the build that were confusing [direction wise] so I can fix it. Best wishes---
I would say use the Brewer's pitch....it seals just fine and not as messy as the wax. However,...if you have big holes to fill, the wax is probably better for that [big holes/cracks]. Maybe use a combo of both? You won't screw it up...both are great options...the wax is just a bit messy inside the mug if it dries quickly. Cheers!
Hand held Espresso maker.
Thanks Carl for the post! I made my first one [of many I'm sure] this afternoon in a few hours. Great idea with the drill chucked into the threaded rod. My only difference in my build was using a slightly thicker rod at #10-32 instead of #8. Thanks again for the Instructable with you tube video. Much appreciated!
Folding Cedar Lawn Chair
I personally would use a hardwood.....That said, I'm sure you can get it to work just fine with pine if sealed well. I only like to work with hardwoods....[Oak, birch, maple, beech, mahogany....] Best wishes!
Michael, thanks again for the tips. Can't wait to use it.....
Slot Together Pyramid Garden Planter
Bought the Brewer's Pine Pitch. Yup, way better.....I'll update with a link. Thanks again for the tip!
yup, workin' on it! ;)
Great point indeed! Best is to just rinse out with hot water....I don't don't even know if I would soap it....the last thing I would want is soap residue in my IPA....no bueno.
Thanks for posting! I absolutely love Pickled Beets....

WelchWoodWorks--That is wise advice! Thank you very much for the great tips! Yup, routing that handle is the craziest part of this build. I think you just solved that problem! Best wishes--
Howdy ManofSteel...I've just made about 8 mugs so far and have given away to close friends and family.... It's plausible I could sell them...I haven't thought about doing that at present.
Hey, thanks ClenseYourPallet! Maybe someone should do a mug in pallet wood, eh?! ;)
Michael, thanks for the tip! Never heard of it....I'll try it out for sure. The beeswax works, but it is a little messy at the bottom. Is there any funk taste from the Pine Pitch?
Thank you for the kind words!
Much appreciated! :)
Thanks for posting! Nicely done!
