This is the companion goblet that I made for myself to go with the heart pine plate that I posted a few days ago. Cup and base are both heart pine. I used a piece of Mt. Mahogany for the stem. I was conserving my pine for some reason. Anyway, the goblet is 3 1/8" wide x 9" tall. Cup is about 1/16" thick top to bottom. There is light that passes through in a couple of places. Finish is DO, buffed down between coats with 0000 steel wool. Must have 10-12 coats on it. Buffed with tripoli, WD, and carnuba. Finally buffed by hand with Ren wax.
The base is a tad small, but this is staying in my collection so it really matters not to me. I love it and know where it came from.
Would still like to hear your comments and your questions.
