Nice goblet. Cool distinctive natural wood. Tell them anything will spin on the lathe just some things may explode.

Explode? The heck you say.

Work on lathe….<chrunk>...
Me: ”~#$%...~#$%”.
Wife peeks into shop: “What was that???”
Me: “On the fly design mod.” grumble, grumble, grumble. “Now, where did those pieces go?”

Seriously though Choke, way to prove ‘em wrong! Nice goblet.

Thank you everyone. DCooksey, I hate when that happens. I’m ok with it as long as it doesn’t hit ME.

I’m not that fast. When I was in the Army, I always joked about being a pack mule and not a gazelle. I could walk for hours with a heavy load, but could run worth a darn. Of course, carrying all those loads has lead to a bad back 20 years later, so I can’t move fast enough to duck. I just take the brunt.
