Kathy those bowls are gorgeous, you have a family heirloom with those. I have a soft spot for walnut and you shape is wonderful and your finish is superior. The coral snake colors are a delightful addition to beautiful work! smiley=thumbsup.gif

I think your goblet is just perfect. I like the finials. Too thin looks to me like they will snap.

So are the pieces all the same thickness? And, how close are they to the edge circumference of the bowl? I'm wondering about the turning of the rim.

Hi Jenny, the thickness doesn't really matter as far as attaching the small pieces of wood. After I turn the bowl, I apply a finish to prevent the CA from staining the bowl and with the bowl still on the chuck, I sand the rim by using a 2x4 with sand paper glued to it. Moving the tool rest up to the bowl and placing the 2x4 across the tool rest. Hold on to the 2x4 and turn the lathe on a slow speed. Sanding the rim prepares the surface for the small pieces. I hand sand the small pieces on three sides and glue them on the rim with the medium CA. Be sure to cover all three sides when gluing. Some pieces will be taller and longer than other because they are scrap pieces and will stick out in all directions. They will be turned down once you put the bowl back on the lathe to turn the rim. I usually will let the CA glue set up over night to ensure a strong hold. When you start to turn the rim, take what I call "baby bites" so you don't chip off any pieces.  Stop and look at the piece as you turn it.  Once you have the rim shaped, sand and finish the bowl.

That's a really cool idea for the bowls, and the cup is very nice too. It's all Rice Crispies when I try to make finials. bang head

Keep em comin!
