Good Morning everyone,
       Constructed of 5/8 oak dowels, 1/2 inch copper fittings, and glass.  It makes an excellent cup of coffee.

Curses! Beat me to it!

Nice lines, and simple. Can you do one for tea?

Haha! It must be opposite day where you are!

However, perhaps baroque might be a better fit for the Green Fairy? Then elegant can be used for coffee!

As for tea, I would imagine it depends on the strength... I digress...  Smiley

Thank you for all of the kind words.  I have been contemplating a way for it to brew tea, and I would need a funnel with a stop cock.  This current funnel pours through (comparatively) quickly.  I would need to be able to stop the flow to build up the strength.  Unfortunately they all seem to be 1.  rather expensive, and 2 have a closed top.

Buy an inexpensive plastic stopcock from a tropical fish tank shop. Apply paints or metallic nail varnish to disguise it's modern dna

Add a valve to the bottom of the funnel, much like a tap, and fashion a lid for the mouth of the funnel.  Add a 3 min glass to the side, which can be turned, so you know when the tea is steeped, and time to open the valve to pour your tea.

Ooh!

You could attach the time glass to the valve so that when the sand runs out you turn over the timer to open the funnel.
