As a Disabled turner, I can no longer lift large heavy pieces of wood to mount on the lathe. The answer, in my case, is to concentrate on mainly miniature pieces.

This miniature goblet stands about 3 inches tall, and the walls below the rim are translucent.

The finish is 2 coats of Cellulose sanding sealer & 2 coats of woodwax 22 (paste wax)

Very cool!! Bet the knot was fun to deal with. Love the colors of this piece too! Great proportions and profile.

Great job Keith, I really like the shape and the colours are beautiful.
Well done Mate.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Thanks for all the kind comments folks!

I’m off to the workshop shortly to see what I can make today. I’m thinking of either a Bowl or a Box…who knows? I’ll see what piece of wood takes my eye when I get in there, and decide then. lol
