I turned this goblet while taking a class with Terry Mitchell, a great teacher at Patrick Henry CC, and I am happy with the way it turned out. The cup is coated with a couple layers of Watco butcher block finish. This was my first time working with mahogany, and just as advertised it was a pleasure to work with, and although some say it is a boring looking wood I love the shimmer it lets off when the light hits it the right way. This cup gets used here and there when my wife and I remember the last supper with some bread and wine. Thanks for looking.

-- Nathan

Love the shape of this Nathan. As mads says… elegant.

Very nice turning. I like the wood – not boring at all. Has a rich look to it.

-- 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.

Very delicate looking with crisp lines…. I like it when a chalice doesn’t look so bulky and heavy…. you have to look at the piece again, to be sure it really is wood.
