This is turned from an Ash tree which had to be coppiced (meaning the tree was not killed by taking this wood). Ash is a very resilient wood and this cup will take a lot of punishment. It was hand turned on a lathe, then sanded before being treated with 5 coats of Danish oil, then waxed. The surface is not all smooth - think "textured" rather than "rough" though, intentionally, to add interest.
A friend asked how mead cups could be attached to the belt, so this one was specifically made to be used with the "Miss Jean" method of belt attachment (named for the person who made the request). This can be purchased separately from our shop (and we will package together to save postage, which will be passed on to you, of course).
This is 10cm (4 inches) tall and 8.5cm (3 and a quarter inches) in diameter. It holds about 230ml (8 fluid oz). By the way, I have used this type of food safe coating for about 15 years without it showing any signs of wear. I can therefore recommend it for using with hot drinks, acidic drinks and alcoholic drinks.
The strap (for belt hanging) attached to this one os made from a recycled belt. You wouldn't know to look at it, but it isn't actually leather - so good for veggies. If you wanted real leather, send me a convo.
*Note on "food safe coatings" - (warning, I may get on my "high horse" for a while) When some people claim that the coating they use is "food safe", what they actually mean is that you can consume it without ill effects. So things like beeswax, which WILL come off in use, will be dealt with by the body. The coating I use will NOT come off in use, and if it did, it would pass through you causing no ill effects. I have used mine with coke, coffee, mulled wine, whisky, beer, mead, etc... (disengage grumpy mode)
*Note on construction - this was turned in a very traditional way, from a whole tree branch. Our ancestors used to go out the the forest, cut down a tree and make it into things there and then. The completed things were then seasoned. They DIDN'T take a basically cylindrical object (a tree branch), saw it into squares (planks), season it, then turn it into cylinders.
I have done this the old way. This makes for a very strong result, BUT there is a weak point - the pithy centre of the branch is still in the bottom of the cup. I have used one for 15 years with no problem at all, but if you find your curiosity gets the better of you and you do insert a pointy metal object through the pithy part, you will be able to turn your nice chalice into a pretty plant pot. You really would not be able to do this accidentally, but I thought it only fair to mention.

Hope you like it
Thanks for looking
