The plugs are fiddle keys . Both ends were made from black walnut . I forged a couple staples to hold a strap .
The inside I coated with brewers wax to make sure she wouldn’t leak .

VERY beautiful sir! I am amazed at your scrimshaw work and attention to detail. If enough of these show up at the Christmas party filled when they show up it should be a hum-dinger of a party. :dance:

Hello, there, this is an impressive and beautiful piece of work. I have one question though. Why does it need two openings? Is the one just a vent so it will pour easier? Inquiring minds want to know.
