I took the wife out yesterday to the mall, and stopped by my local Rockler to get some turning materials. She fell in love with tulip, and asked me to make her a goblet. But she fell in love with a tiny little piece… quite the challenge for a novice turner.
Well, the guy at the shop told me not to get to close to my screws (I screwed it to the board attached to my faceplate), so I did the exact opposite by mistake. Hence the cracked base. But it looks beautiful nonetheless. Tulip has some amazing colors in it, and I’ve got a buddy with a tulip tree begging to be cut down. :D Next goblet I make will be much larger.
