I made this large goblet for my beautiful wife. It consists of 5 separate turnings, and is made of spalted maple burl (supplied by one of our fellow Lumberjocks, Greg of Oregon Burls – thank you!), amboyna burl, and African blackwood. It is finished with oil and lacquer, and stands 16 inches tall. The style is very much influenced by David DeCristoforo

The only word for that is exquisite! But I could also add superb craftsmanship!

Yet another very cool turning. I can’t help being envious of your Powermatic, even though I’m not doing much turning these days.

Fantastic work, Thanks for showing.

-- 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.

Thank you all for your generous comments. My wife is my biggest supporter and is very happy with the goblet. This is a purely decorative piece, designed for the mantle or book case.

Mike, I have not had it very long but think that the Powermatic is a great lathe. I have added a bed extension to give me more room, and also the lighting rig. I like to use the Beall collet chuck for small spindle work.

Pete, if I ever meet David I will have to buy him a few beers!
