My wife really enjoys a good bottle of wine, perhaps a requirement for dealing with me on a daily basis. As a result of that, and our upcoming anniversary (seems we’ve had one of those annually since 1996…) I thought a wine glass would be thoughtful. The captive ring is added simply as a touch of flair, that and it just seemed a shame to remove all that wood as “excess” never to be seen again. The challenging part about it was that I have yet to own/use a captive ring tool. This is all scraper, spindle gouge and skew chisel. It wasn’t without mishap. There could’ve been more than one ring, but that skew chisel just isn’t the ideal tool for the job. Hope you enjoy this glance at my best attempt. This comes from a block of maple and finished with shellawax on the outside and salad bowl finish on the inside. Every project provides a lesson…this one provided several.

Lovely looking goblet. I know exactly what you mean about learning as you go.
Great fun though.
