Last weekend I went to the Woodworking Show in Chantilly VA. I sat in on Bradley McCalister’s “Turning Projects on a Mini Lathe” He choose to do the goblet. There were not many of us and it was good seminar with a lot of interaction. For a small fee I wound up taking the goblet he did home with me as an inspiration piece. Deciding I wanted to try my hand at making one. The first pic shows his goblet out of a nice piece of Ambrosia Maple. I had a piece of Aspen in my shop for a couple of years now and decided it may be just the wood to try it out with.
After putting my chuck together to hold something other than pen blanks I was all set to go. I watched another refresher video, this one by Mike Waldt on Youtube. “Wood Turning - Beginners Guide #1 - A Goblet” A good amount of information coupled with the seminar and I was ready to go. This is the first thing I have turned that was mounted in a chuck and that I completely parted off. I left the stem a bit thick as I was not overly sure of myself but it allowed me to add some of my burning that I like, I like the final outcome and plan to do a little more stretching of projects soon.
Thanks for looking.
