After spending a day of working on my dust collector project, I decided to turn my first goblet. Well, this is actually my second – the first was scraped because I was too impatient. I’ve seen this turned at a woodworking show and thought it was almost impossible. It’s not quite the design I was looking for, but I lack some of the tools (oh my, guess I need to pick up some more turning tools!).
JockMike, unbeknown to him, supplied me with the maple (he was giving away box loads of wood at our last MI-picnic) – thanks Mike!
I am going to finish with mineral oil. All in all – a learning experience that was a lot of fun. Next goblet – a real one, one that I can drink from.
-- I've never seen a tree that I wouldn't like to repurpose into a project. I love the smell of wood in the morning - it smells like victory.
