Woodturning Coffee BEANS Into a Coffee CUP!

Wonder what happens with bag of coffee beans on the lathe? Let’s find out!
For starters, no project has ever smelled so good!
When I began woodturning the coffee beans into a coffee mug I had no idea what to expect. I just wanted to do a little something different. Would it even hold together? Would I find air pockets all over given all the small cracks and crevices between and inside the coffee beans? Which would make the piece too weak to cut into anything of use. This was more of a long shot experiment than a potentially successful project. I did not have high hopes for this to turn out well.
You might have noticed I ran my PSI up to 80 instead of the usual 60 PSI in the pressure chamber given all of the small places for air to hide. I have a strong feeling this helped because in certain spots the walls of tumbler were sanded down thinner than the width of a coffee bean. Impossible to do without the cup collapsing in on itself! So I thought.
Another thing you may notice is after doing the initial shaping and drilling on the coffee mug, not a single blade touched the coffee bean/epoxy mixture for the rest of the project- only on the spalted oak base and lid were metal tools used again. All of the shaping was done with heavy grit sandpaper because it's a lot less aggressive on the already thin cup. That's how careful I wanted to be with the pice after an unexpectedly successful (but very slow) drilling process.
In case you were wondering, I did go back and coat the entire cup in a food grade epoxy. I didn't have any on hand at the time of the video. Here's the link to the stuff I used:
Disclaimer: After decades of wood working (wood turning, sculpting, building projects) I’ve developed unique techniques when putting certain tools to use. In some cases this is very dangerous and not recommended for you to try. If you decide to use tools like those presented in my videos, please follow their intended uses and directions.

Is there "food grade" epoxy you could treat the wood with, to seal it? It feels like untreated wood would be safe to use with anything but water. Imagine an untreated, "raw" wood coffee cup. It would absorb the coffee (and cream & sugar, if you like them), & become a breeding ground for bacteria & mold (nless there is some aspect of this project you didn't show, i.e. treating the wood off-screen).

Good question! I use oat milk so no spoilage of dairy milk to worry about. And the wood actually works as a natural anti microbial, keeping conditions more sanitary than you’d expect (probably why wood cutting boards are so commonly used). And for the coffee beans and resin, you nailed it! I went back and coated it with a food grade epoxy because I didn’t have any on hand at the time of the project.

For me, a transparent color of epoxy would have been better so that you will see all the coffeabeans layers. Also would have been nice if you have shown the final product longer in the end.

A beautiful craft! 😍 I think I would have preferred a transparent epoxy- it gives more visual texture of the beans. And I might have like a different shape lid a bit more- but I've never done wood turning so maybe that was the best shape to do!

Surprisingly clear epoxy looks terrible with this design. You would think it’s bright and you can see every bean but it actually goes very opaque and the beans/epoxy look one color.

Amazing work! As a former machinist, I love seeing wood lathes used to create art. However, as a former machinist, please let the lathe come to a stop on its own and don't touch the piece until it is finished spinning. I had to have a massive splinter removed from my hand because I didn't let the piece stop spinning, and it was expensive.

This is actually the worst part of the log. It is the core of the stem, the more of this structure you have the closer to being rotten it is. Usually you would only use it for burning wood, but for optical purposes it seem to suffice. In general the whiter an cleaner the wood is overall, the better and more expensive.

I have questions: How much would one of these cost? How long do these take to make? Do you use only one brand of coffee beans for these or would you be willing to use other brands like, say, Maxwell House for instance? Do you use other colors of resin for these mugs or just white? What about engravings? Just for curiosity sake at the moment. If I can then in the future I think these would make amazing Christmas gifts for three of my family members who are huge coffee enthusiasts later. At the moment I am totally broke though, so this would be something I’d have to save for.

That is really awesome. Note on the lid seal: you can superglue the seal together where you cut it, so you can cut it slightly undersized (maybe .020"-.050") and superglue it together off the lid, then seal the lid and just slip the seal on and off. The reason I bring this up is because mold can develop under the seal.

@Prestons Projects that's the beauty of it, it ain't all one colour . You got the brown beans and the black epoxy. Trust me man, I can visualise it. Just Photoshop it if you are in doubt

As you were working with the coffee beans I wonder if you enjoyed the smell of coffee? Or did the resin stop any smell? Thanks for this fascinating video. In the workshop when I was in school I was very curious as to what everyone could bring from their imagination into reality. Blessings from South Eastern Australia, Dot

Someone I know had done this a few years back, but had used a transparent food grade epoxy with just a slight tint of brown. Your project turned out wonderful nonetheless. :)

@Prestons Projects It was clear transparent, but with just a slight tint of brown.

Not nearly big enough for the amount of coffee I need. Awesome project and craftsmanship.

I was concerned about whether or not it was safe to drink in, but it was addressed in another comment already. It is a very cool cup!

You should do a longer end montage, that was a really cool cup!
