PS to my last post
The tankard is leaking, when it has dried completely. At the moment, I keep it filled with water, so I can try various drinks. The beer was nice, no traces of linseed taste or smell getting in the way. I also tried goat’s milk and water. There is one big difference to most other drinking vessels: It doesn’t immediately take the temperature of the drink and it feels much lighter than for example a beer mug made of glass. And its rugged appearance seems to enhance the quality of the drink.
By the way, I didn’t glue the handle, it doesn’t seem necessary.
And a final statement
I learned a lot making this tankard. It is definitely a prototype with quite a few defects, but I know, that I will do much better on the next ones. And I know, that I can make the wooden bucket, which was the initial idea.
