Project Information

This morning I was inspired me to get off my duff, and turn a wedding goblet for an upcoming wedding. The happy couple are two of our closest golfing friends. I think that they will really appreciate this goblet.

This goblet is not yet finished. This is straight off the lathe; just a bit of shellac on it (I use this when sanding). Made of a piece of scrap cherry I have had lying around wanting to be something. 4 1/2" tall by 3" round. Very thin walled, light shines through it. A little thicker at the rim. I'm very happy with the way it "turned" out. This we be laser engraved with names and date…...... not sure what finish will go on yet.

Comments critiques advice welcome.

Very impressive Brian! The interlocking rings have me pondering - seems to me that there is a good deal of hand work there. A very beautiful piece that should hold a lot of meaning as well as wine.

Very nice, it looks like the rings interlock with each other. That must be a true lather's trick to do that? Thanks for sharing.

Interlocking rings :

No trickery here my friends…. Turn on the lathe during the process. Sometimes the skew is your friend !
After rings are cut they are taped to the cup to make room for turning the rest of the stem….. The bottom ring is then broke and routed through the top and re-glued ( cyano) .

Nothing to it at all. ............. and thanks for the kind words.

Awww, and I thought you did it the hard way (I have no idea what the hard way is, but it would be really impressive!) Actually, this is still impressive.

Nice goblet Brian. I love the interlocking rings. I thought maybe you were having an eye problem, but it turns out you did it on purpose, LOL.

Really enjoyed it. This is all done from a single piece of wood?
