One of these days, I’m going to remember that I want to post on here the before shot – what the blank looks like prior to cutting. Oh well.

I had some walnut left over from when I made my desk, which I love by the way, and my dad had some maple left over from when he built my sister a bed nearly 15 years ago. I decided to “borrow” the maple, and turn him this fancy goblet. Fitting that my father receive the first goblet I would consider a success, since he bought me the lathe and all. And I picked up enough skill in the nick of time… I ran out of cheap blanks for practice.

I hope you enjoy the goblet as much as I do. Particularly the little patch of brown in the maple…. I find it amazing, and intriguing. What is that from? Comments, criticisms, and suggestions welcome, as always.
