Wood cups were the only type of cups that were available in medieval days. The metal came and then glass and plastic. Not many people use wood cups these days but they are still fun to turn and use.
Wood cups can be turned into all kinds of shapes. Many woods can be used and white oak may be the favorite as it's internal structure makes it less porous than most other woods.
