To make this, I took staves, about 5/8 inch square & 6 inches long, 4 Cherry, 4 Oak, and 1 Ash in the center. I glued them up with Titebond original. The turning was a little nervous as it’s my 1st ever “glue-up”, but I will have the confidence to turn the “cup” a little thinner next time. A real fun project to make!

Thank You all for your kind comments. I have only recently taken up Turning, and I still have a LOT to learn.
I have studded video tutorials on YouTube for over a year, but have only had a functional workshop for about 8 weeks.
