Hey guys and gals, well i just made a set of ring tools so i had to try them out and this was my first go round. This Walnut goblet is 7” tall, the cup is 3 ” across the top, and the foot is 2” the ring is 1 1/2 ”. Finished with salad bowl finish in case someone wants to drink out of it.All comments and questions welcome.

This is one great goblet. I really like the ring detail and the fact that you made the tooling. Thanks for sharing!

Great goblet. Love the shape and the ring. In Richard Raffan’s video, he does this with a skew. I have tried and failed. haha Might have to check into some “ring making” tools.

Keep up the great work.

So incredible, I am no turner and really don’t know what to ask, but if you could explain a little about how you did it, I would appreciate it. No real big explanation but is it one piece or were there multiple pieces. Pardon my ignorance.

Very nice goblet. you did a nice job on getting nice and straight and nice finish. Apparently you made a very good ring tool.

Thanks for all the great feedback guys and gals.wseand this goblet was turner out of one solid piece of walnut. i start by turning the cup and starting the stem, after the first inch of stem is done i pick a section and turn a bead with space on both sides so i can work. then i use a skew chisel to take out most of the waste, then when i think i have a round bead i use my ring tools to part the ring from the rest of the wood. hope this helps. thanks again.
