First wooden mug
I can't take the wait.
Thus I don't enjoy woodwork of myself.
But I find a chunk of wild cherry tree
that is well seasoned.
I hesitate to decide what I make.
Finally, big mug cup is a decision.
Because I have a pain in my wrist,
the mug must be simple or minimal.
It's more of a prototype...
I add a leash on the handle,
but its shape isn't satisfactory.
For lighter weight,
its bottom is scraped out.
Leaking test : passed
I decorate a sheep's backbone
that have got during my travels
I change the shape of its handle,
color with coffee powder,
and coat with linseed-turpentine
After the coating is set,
I wash out the rest of oil
with boiled water.
Jasmin tea emits a subtle scent.
To some degree,
I am content with it.
A little long-headed grasshopper
drops in this mug
for his/her congratulations.
He/She nibbles away leash greedily.:)
More natural... it will be.
