This is a little Ambrosia Maple goblet I made for a demo in second hour today. There were no kids that needed help on the lathe and I was getting bored so I grabbed a piece of this nice maple and turned this goblet in 25 minutes. I had to get it done before 3rd hour kids got in.

It is 1 3/4” x 6” high and finished with the friction polish they use at the high school.

Cheers, Jim

That turned out fantastic!

Nice when you don’t have to “hand hold” the kids.

Than you all for the nice comments.

Hi Joe. There were 3 of 4 students watching the order of cutting so they might attempt it before the semester is out. I also want them to scout out the best part of a board for a project to get the best of the grain pattern and stay away from cracked areas that could fly apart when brought up to speed

That is the “new” camera from E bay. Works great!!

Very nice Jim. I especially like the stem and the bottom with the look of the grain.
25 minutes? You must of amazed those kids. I think they are saying, look at this guy.

Thanks, Dave. I learned the technique last year when I had to help a student make one. I did that whole thing with a 1/2” and 3/8” bowl gouges.

Great shape.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
