Here are a pair of wine goblets I made. Had to try another segmented turning after my last one did not turn out. (they say to get back on that horse so I did)
Left one is Walnut and Maple. Right one is Padauk and Maple. Each have 54 pieces for a total of 108 pieces of wood.
Walnut and Padauk are both from cut off bin (scraps) Maple is from a dresser I was given for the wood.
Dimmensions are: 9 inch tall overall. Stem is 4 inch tall X 1/2 inch with a 3 1/4 diam foot.
Picked up the glasses at GoodWill for $1.29 for the pair. I do love to reuse/repurpose/recycle. Just cut the stems off at 1 1/2 inch below the cup. After turning, Drilled hole for stem and glued in.
You can buy the glasses at www.woodturnerscatalog.com for $3.99 I have gotten a lot of good ideas from that catalog. haha
Thank You for looking. Please leave all comments and suggestions.
