This is a goblet I made from scraps of Acacia and Pecan wood. The acacia pieces were long pen blanks that never became pens. It also has a captured ring. It finished at 1 1/2” diameter and 6” tall. It is finished with Danish oil and buffed and waxed.

I added some shots of the turning process:


The ring is taped to the shaft for finishing the base.

Cheers. Jim

Very clever Jim.
The extra photos he show blokes like me who don’t turn, how you made it, thank you.

Nice goblet Jim and a good selection of scraps. Looks super. I haven’t made a caption ring I bet in over 4 years.

Thanks Barbara. Yes , fun every day.I did not have any ring tools here so I cut the ring with two Allen wrenches that I sharpened and put wood handles on them- one right hand and one left hand.

Cheers, Jim
