I was turning a couple of segmented goblets and got a bit carried away turning the out side of the second piece before I hollowed out the goblet. I’ve been wanting to build one for some time now. I picked up a free pair of older roller blades from C/L. 2- 14” pcs of 3/4 BB plywood. the arms and other bits are polar. It went together pretty quick and works well. My thanks to the LJ’s who answered my questions a while back regarding this.
Thanks fer lookin’.

Nice work on the steady rest Mark and a very good looking pair of goblets. Like the design.

Absolutely brilliant! Superior craftsmanship, both on constructing the steady rest and your goblet turnings. Thanks for posting.

Super cool rest, simple and easy to use.
I have had the parts in my shop for this for several years now, but…
So perhaps I can get the push by seeing your fine version.

Mark, you did a nice job on that steady rest. It’s a fine accessory to your lathe.
