it will be a bell, no a goblet, no a box?

so i started with a piece of spalted beech (or so i am told) and the plan was to make a bell for my daughter to give to her teacher. after i started shaping the bell it began to look like a goblet and i liked that idea. I scratched the bell idea and started working towards a goblet.

well, there is a funny thing that happens when you take too much out of the inside of a goblet. yes, i cut through it.

I managed to use the remaining wood to make a small box

That’s great. I am pretty new to turning, and when I start out on the lathe, the project is is a large mallet or something. By the time I am finished with the wood, I am lucky to get a thimble out of it!

Nicely done,

Probably won’t be the last time you “repurpose” a turned item. Good recovery.

Sometimes we don’t get to decide what it’ll be or exactly how it will look until we finally put the tools away. Been here, doing that, like everyone else on this site. Nicely done “box”
