I did this project several months ago and forgot to post it. I turned it from a piece of fire wood. It had a lot of checks in it and there was a very bad one up the side of the cup so I decided to carve it away. It’s no good for drinking unless you hold it up to your mouth as you pour…...hmmmm…..... but I like it as something a little different. Thanks for looking.

CS, it’s absolutely a beautiful piece of work. Congratulations.

That is so neat! I wish I had the turning and carving talents that you have. It takes alot of imagination and skill to see that goblet in the piece of firewood. As far as drinking out of it…maybe the next one you turn you could size it so that a clear plastic liner would fit the inside. Keep up the great work

Great save Slabon. You transformed it nicely!
