This was a fun project as the smell of coffee beans is incredible when wood turning. It results in a great looking coffee mug, which if sealed with a food safe sealant, you can drink hot coffee from safely. What’s not to love about this practical art? Okay, not so great if you don’t drink coffee!

Looking for a project in woodturning for beginners? The combination of coffee beans and epoxy resin actually makes the wood turning easier than many other projects I’ve tried. Ideal fo someone wishing to explore this kind of diy craft.
The resin craft project was inspired by 3 excellent videos, which I highly recommend you watching:
