For your viewing pleasure:
One Walnut goblet which measures an exact 2" tall. The stem tapers down to a seductive 1/16" thick at the narrowest point. Sanded and finished with Velvet Oil to give a really nice feel. I told my wife it was a Baptist wine goblet. She said that it would hold too much for Baptists. She's right of course.
Questions, comments, and critiques are always welcome. I look forward to seeing what you have to say about it.
Lots of fun to turn. Walnut is pretty open grained so it caused a bit of worry from time to time. However, that small voice in the back of my head kept saying that it was time to sharpen. For once I listened and got the piece turned. Sanded about 5 different times; inside bowl, outside bowl, 3 times on the stem, and the base. I guess that makes 6. Was really fun to do. Enjoy!
