Just finished another little piece from my free firewood given to me by my friend. This is a wild colored goblet lathe turned and finished by soaking in water base poly. Very fun to do as I am learning how to turn this punky stuff a little better. Thanks for looking.

Yet another home run !
It just shows that firewood isn’t necessarily firewood. Great job Vernon

Very nicely turned and finished—I really like the proportions!

Beautiful Vernon. You are making it look easy. That goblet has some great grain on it, but it takes a good turner to get the best out of it. Well done.
