Tankards are available!

We're pleased to announce the availability of a limited number of Don Lewis Designs tankards! Just click on the blue banner at the top of the page to see our selection (a larger photo will show up if you click on a particular piece).

These are some of our handsomer pieces and will make excellent Christmas gifts.

Ahem. All proceeds will be donated to Younger Daughter's orthodontic treatment.


  1. How would they hold up to being frozen. Donno if my inlaws would use them or not, but they like stuffing larger mugs in the freezer instead of using icecubes for their cold drinks....

    1. We don't recommend freezing, because wood contracts under extreme temperatures and freezing may compromise the integrity of the seams. On the other hand, wood has naturally insulating properties, so cold or hot drinks maintain their temperatures better than ceramic or plastic.

    2. Hello Patrice: I've been lurking and reading your blog for several months and finally registered so that I could comment. I also bought your book "Simplicity Primer" and have found it to be quite inspiring.

      Finally, I have to say how much I love the banner photographs as they are beautiful examples of (I assume) your part of Idaho. Just lovely!

    3. Makes sense. I definetly want one for me, and my dad would enjoy one....

      FYI, I got a weird "your email has bounced" that appeared to be my above comment bouncing back to my email.....donno if it really bounced or if you have a bug, but I thought I'd mention it!

  2. Ha! We just paid the first installment. So far braces on top teeth only. The lower half to follow in a few weeks...

  3. I've been waiting for this announcement and have sent you an e-mail to place an order.

  4. The one I ordered just arrived today, and I am so impressed! I had high expectations (because I've heard rave reviews of them), and your product met my expectations! (By the way, I'm also amazed at the speed of shipping - I called two days ago to complete the order, and here it was today.) I've been sharing your link with friends in hopes that they too will take advantage of the opportunity.
