Well, I never intended to do this but, I made a mistake when turning one of the feet for my new dresser. I made the undercut too small so in my spare time I made this Chalice. This is the first time I ever tried to make something that had to be cleaned out on the inside. It stands 5” tall and about 3 1/2” in diameter. It’s made of oak as you can tell. It is finished with some Salad Bowl finish.
Thanks for looking.

Nice save, Don. Looks awsome. Sometimes I wish I had a lathe

Looks great. Sure you want to say that you made a mistake on a project. Does not look like you did.
