I keep making things for the LOML and she actually asked why. LOL I told her it was for the understanding she shows when I want to spend a whole Saturday in the shop. It’s for her to take to work to hold her pens when she finishes her maternity leave in 2 weeks
Made from 3 laminated pieces of curly maple and finished with shellac and turners polish. I would have called it a goblet, but it looks too deep for that. It’s about 6” tall
Had problems hollowing it out as I only have 1 bowl and 2 spindle gouges. I think I need to invest in some hollowing tools lol. Either that or learn how to use my tools better :-P .
It was my first attempt at goblet turning, I ended up with a nick in the rim and after turning the piece around, it slipped in the oneway chuck causing a small spiral groove in the rim but it almost looks like part of the design :D
Thanks for looking! Feedback of course is always welcome.
