These small goblets were turned on a lathe and finished with turner’s polish. Each one started as a 2″ by 2″ spindle mounted on a 4 jaw chuck. A forstner bit was used to do most of the hollowing then a variety of tools finished the rest of the shape. Although they can be used for small glass or port of a double shot they make a great little knick knack sitting around the house.

These guys were intended for decoration because I used EEE Ultra Shine wax and Master’s Turner’s Finish. Not food safe.

Great looking small goblets. I have a few containers of Turners Polish from LV but for the life of me can’t seem to get any sort of worth while finish. Do you suppose you could share the finishing process?

I learned early on that if I’ve got too much pressure when applying the turner’s finish, it will overheat and basically burn dull.

After sanding to 600 grit I apply EEE ultra shine wax with a lot of pressue. That heats the wax for deeper penetration in the wood and also polishes at the same time. Then I lightly apply the turners finish and let dry while still on the lathe.

Thanks for the comment. I doubt that this is what is causing the problem but I will try a ‘softer’ approach.
