A small Cup or Goblet, 4 inches tall, in English Yew. Sanded to 600 grit, then finished with 2 coats or Chestnut Hard Wax Oil (de-nibbed with 0000 wire wool between coats), and burnished to a high gloss with Burnishing Cream. A fun piece to make!

Comments welcome.

Really like this one Kieth, the top half looks like a glass gone all frosted with a cold drink being poured, well done

very nice goblet ,beautiful wood

- ZAGREB


Thank You ZAGREB. The wood (Yew) is so nice to work with, but it is highly toxic, so a good quality dust protection mask is needed, but worth it for the result I think. ;-)

-- 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.

I like Pete’s answer being a frosted mug. Looks great. I have a couple pieces of some kind of Yew I’m saving for a good project like this,

I like the turning but am wondering if the light colour is natural.

Hi John, YES, the lighter (almost white) colour is purely natural. Yew is a lovely wood to turn, that’s for sure!
