This is my FIRST EVER off axis piece, and the “prototype” of MY method of doing them.
When I had the idea of trying to make a goblet with the WHOLE stem off-set to both the cup AND the foot, I looked on line to see if there was any info on how to make it, and couldn’t find ANYTHING about it….not even a photo!
I’m not suggesting that I’m the very first person to have tried this, but it may be that I’m the first to have had success with it. It’s NOT perfect!!...but doing this prototype has proved that my method works, and my theory was sound. I will be making adjustments to my method (mainly in the order that I make some of the cuts, and what needs to be sanded & finished at what point in the process) that will result in a more refined finished product, and indeed I intend to start on the next one within the next few hours!
Once I have ironed out the small “flaws” in the making of these, I will be making a video showing how I do them, that I’ll post to YouTube, and indeed I will post a link in the comments of this post so that anyone who may wish to try making this project will have a workable method to work from.
If you would find it helpful to have a video on the making of this project, I would ask you to leave a comment below.
