Weekend Project: Make a Wooden “Viking” Beer Mug…No Power Tools Required

Sometimes a pint glass’ll do…and sometimes, your beer (or grog…or mead) needs to be sipped from a genuine, rough hewn wooden mug, made with nothing but a hatchet and a knife.

Or…well…maybe it doesn’t need to be, but if I had one of these, I’d sure use it as much as possible. 

Bartolo, a maker from Belgium, explains how to turn a solid log into a hollowed-out mug, using some clever splitting and a sealing technique using propolis, a resinous mixture that honey bees collect to seal and reinforce their hive.
