This is a wedding goblet I made for the manager of the store where I buy my carpet and tile for the house. It is made out of pear with a walnut oil finish. The only thing left to do is take it to the engraver where I will engrave it with the bride & grooms name and the inscription “With this ring I thee wed”

That’s a beautiful goblet, and the captive rings look to be inter locked. Very nice.

I really like the look. The captive rings are great. Interlocking them is a nice touch. Thanks for posting!

OK, I’ll ask, how do you achieve the interlocked rings?

This is a beautiful gift and a nicely turned piece. Well done!

Thanks for the comments, they are always welcomed and appreciated. To make the interlocking rings one of them has to be broken, not cut, and then glued back together. If it’s a clean break you can hardly see the joint when you glue it together. We have been doing business with this store since we built our house in 1984. He has always given us excellent service and products at a reasonable price and has always been there to answer any questions we might have. That is hard to find in the business world today.
