“Spalted Japanese Maple Goblet” is such big name for such a small turing.
I cannot get over how beautiful wood can be. This goblet was made from the trunk of a small Japanese Maple tree that died. I normally do not bother with such small pieces, as the trunk was only about 4” in diameter and about 20” long, but knowing that it is Maple and that it was dead for some time, I knew that there was a high probability that it was spalted. Sure enough.
This goblet is actually the results of my third attempt. I blew through the cup on the first two attempts, as I mention in my Shop Journal.
