This is a goblet turned from some spalted sweet gum. I all most waited to long to turn this wood, because it did have some pretty punky spots in it, but it all turned out. This also my first goblet. I have tried a few others, but all ended up in the burn pile. Thanks for looking and all comments are welcome.

Very nice! I know absolutely nothing about turning so have no idea of how an item such as this is turned but I sure like the results.

very nice, my only suggestion is that if you are going to make the cup so thin then the steam also needs to be thin.just my 2 cents.
