Irish goblet with two captive rings – wedding day gift
Turned from Pistacia palestina (often referred to as “terebinth”). The meaning in Hebrew is Israeli Goddess.
I made it for a guy who was getting married, and wished to present it as a token of his love to his beloved at their wedding ceremony.
I had never met the lad, but we’re both members of a local woodworking FB group. He sort of mentioned it by the way, and I sort of took it up forward… I met him for a few minutes when he passed by to collect it.
I have been told that this not a trivial act, not obvious or expected.
Maybe so, but the joy, pride, and happyness of having someone present a piece I made to his bride – that is priceless and charished forever.
It started off like this:
Than, on the lathe, the beautiful figuration of this wood revealed:
Some help in hollowing, from an improvised steady rest…
And from an improvised “ring tool” (ground Allen wrench)
Hope you enjoy watching as much as I have making!
