A while back I watched a Carl Jacobson video on turning an eccentric goblet. I decided to give it a try, but made mine my a tealight candle holder. Fun project. The first try, I used an Easy Wood Tool Finisher and didn’t achieve a large enough gap between the sections. The second try, I had a catch and it busted at one of the joints. The third try I used a fingernail gouge and more or less achieved the design I was looking for. The gaps were adequate and it looked pretty eccentric when finished.
I used Pine for this project and the sanding/finishing didn’t really achieve the smooth look I wanted so next time, I’ll use a better quality wood now that I kind of have it figured out.
Once again, thanks to Carl Jacobson for the idea.
