Looks really cool! Would definitely like to see more and perhaps some more details on how you make them?

Those are cool.  What is your source of wood?  It has a rustic, re-purposed look.  Have you done other sizes yet?  Like for holding kitchen utensils or around flower pots?  I'd like to see your other projects.

Well, there is a lot of geometry involved in making these, but the skills to do so are several hundred years old.
I basically make a really small barrel, the tricky bits are getting the bevels cut right and the taper for each slat correct. Each of these are made from between 14-18 individual pieces of wood, precision is a must.

See more on my picasa album.

This is the cup I use every day.

Your everyday cup is really nice!  I imagine you put the ridges on after its constructed?

I make things like these instead of having a girlfriend or social life.
