This is a goblet/chalice that I made from a 4×4x12 hunk of construction grade pine. Wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with it from the get go, but thats what i love about the lathe. Once you get your piece roughed out, the wood starts to take on a life of its own. All you have to do is help it along. This just screamed drinking vessel to me. Once I got into it, it had some pretty cool grain pattern. Next time though, I’m gonna make the cup a little thinner, and do a better job sanding. This just didn’t want to sand.

Amen! That’s exactly my favorite part of the lathe, as well. Everything is uncertain until you start to sand it, and the true beauty of a chunk of wood will, without a doubt, reveal itself. Nice chalice, friend!
