You DO have a talent with wood! Me, not so much . . . folks still ask me what the cutting board that I made in wood shop back in the '60's is supposed to be . . .

Awesome, do you have to put any kind of Finnish on it? Or is that a bad idea since you'll be drinking out of it?
Only the exterior has any finish. I use my own beeswax finish. Not sure what finnish the Finns used. Nothing is applied to the inside of the mug. Rather, it is boiled in salt water during the construction process and when completed it is seasoned with cognac.

I am not sure how the alder will hold up to repeated use for tea. This cup may just end up on a display shelf.
