One of the students at school wanted to make a goblet so I tried to help him but we got going the wrong way.
So I researched how to do it on You tube and found a video by James Santhon. Below:
I had this chunk of spalted maple sitting on the bench wanting to be something but it had a big split along the side. I laid out the center off to one side to keep the spit out of the finished product and it turned away without flying off like I thought it would. I followed Mr. Santhon’s process and it worked rather well. Now I can set the student on the right path tomorrow after having done it myself!
It is 1 7/8” x 6” high and finished with EEE and Shellawax just like in the video and I did it in steps too.
While on the lathe I finished a couple of oak shoehorns for Christmas gifts this year, too. The last shot is turning the brass ferrule on a mandrel in the metal lathe. I bought a bunch of brass fittings at the recycler and had to make a mandrel to cut the taper.These are the front ferrules on the shoe horns. They are finished with clear gloss lacquer
