I’ve always wanted to do something with a piece of olive. I bought this log on ebay (picture 6), and when it arrived, I couldn’t decide what to do with it. ANOTHER GOBLET IT IS!!! This makes my third goblet, and my eleventh turning species thus far. I’m turning into a woodaholic.
I’m very fond of this shape and design, and I have no idea why. I will have to give this thing an epoxy bath on the outside, though, as the base has already begun to check. I might just go pick up some CA glue and inlay the cracks, that would look pretty awesome.
I’d like to point out two features of this beautiful piece of wood. In the first pic, lower right corner, there is a small knot where a branch seems to be about to form. It looks interesting to me. Second, look at pic four, does anyone else see a heart shape in there? Two, even. In the bottom of the cup, and one on the wall.
This was a lot of fun! Enjoy, and comment/criticize as usual! (does anyone even criticize on here? you’re all so kind! I hope if I mess up someone lets me know)
