made this from a single piece of mulberry for a friends wedding, yesterday. Wow,it was a chore! It is a bit over 6” tall. Had to carve the rings and then work under and around them; may be a one time ordeal!

A very tinely posting! That is a very nice project, another item added to my favorites for a future project. We have a number of weddings coming up in the next 12 months and this would make a great little gift. I’m sure your friends will cherish the one you made for them.

Exceptional! Your friends should be elated. One of a kind is what makes it great. Although I could easily see you get asked to make a LOT more!

My wife and I had a double handled silver goblet for our wedding toast that we treasure to this day, I am sure your friends who will start their life together by drinking from this cup will treasure it as well. it is beautiful.
