Coffee cup in an old lens

Alas, it’s just a clever photoshop, found floating around unattributed, save for a scrawled signature, on the image boards.

    > Now I’ve got to check at the thrift stores for a damaged zoom lens, dig up a cool handle, and figure out a way to spin or press a stainless liner. Oh, Rob, what hast thou wrought??

    For a brief overview on metalspinning stainless or alumnium to make a coffee cup, check out the Turned Out Right blog:

    I suggest filling it with molten lead and then pouring the contents into a stream in a national park. The remainder will plug the leaks.

    I wonder if it would be possible to carefully hacksaw a slot for the handle and drop commuter mug into the lens and superglue in place?

    Tjic, thank you so much!! I will check that out.

    Good idea!!

    I could also melt down some Bisphenol-A and spray it in as a liner. I’ve heard that’s good for you.

    oh yeah, it’s in Russian, so I don’t know if he’s the one that designed everything on the page.
