I purchased 4 of these and after a little time the stainless steel top ring came off the top of the unit. never even got to make them. I felt it wasn't worth the return shipping to send them back.

Neat project and the first I have turned of this size. I had just recently purchased a midi lath and scroll chuck and enjoyed doing this mug. I built up a blank with black walnut, birch and cherry in the middle. I did not have a 2 7/8 bit so used a 2 3/8 and the 2 1/8, then finished up the inside with 3/4" diamond side scraper that I just purchased and all has come together well. Will do this one again.
