I rough turned this goblet maybe four months ago, before I had a lathe chuck. Now with my Barracuda2 4-jaw lathe chuck, finishing it was as easy as planing pine. (HINT* Be careful not to over tighten the screws when mounting those jaws, some screws stripped after 2 weeks, allen tool too, but I was cranking em down too hard. I had to drill em out).
This is an end grain goblet, so its performance as a liquid receptacle may be lacking. Not sure.
Used a Benjamin’s Best hollowing tool, which works pretty good if you get the carbide cutter sharp and angle it properly, then u can just munch threw it. Sanded to 2000 on the outside, roughly sanded inside. Finished iwth Mylands Cellulose Sanding Sealer and Mylands Friction Polish. I must say. Using that combo doesn’t even seem fair. The polish is insane. I can see how it’s almost too much, and I’ll use it sparingly I’m sure once the novelty wears off.
I flipped it over and let some pentacryl wick up into it to help battle any checking in the stem. It’s pretty darn dry though. Also let some mineral oil soak inside for a bit.
