This is a Small Adult Beverage Vessel, made of Eastern Red Cedar, having a Captive Ring around the Stem. It was the very first Thing, after a trial piece, which still sits on my desk, where I pulled off the Captive Ring concept. (I cut it free using a dental pick, and have done so since – it works. This piece came very early on in my turning experience. So, if there are tool marks and other manifestations of amateurishness, that’s my excuse.

Very nice Mark! I wonder if you would consider the possibility that the wood is Sycamore (the American kind, not the English kind). You’re in a better position to know since you know where the wood came from. It has kind of a distinctive fleck pattern on the quartersawn face. Here’s a picture of some Sycamore I was milling about a year ago.

It does look like that, doesn’t it? I bought the bowl/goblet balnks from a guy on Ebay a long time ago, who called them Eastern Red Cedar. Stay tuned. I’ll load a picture in a minute of what was sold as “Sycamore”.
