I wish there was a good story behind this, but there really isn’t.
I was working on the little goblet and the box at the same time (turning is a great thing to do while the glue is drying on your other project), and at some point I realized that the goblet would fit into the box, Whaddya know? I stole a piece of fabric from my wife’s sewing room, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Both pieces started off with BLO. The vessel was completed with turning wax at the lathe, while the box was given multiple coats of water based poly, sanded back, then rubbed out with rottenstone and pumice. It is smooth as glass, although the pictures really don’t show it well.
