Again, grab bag wood, and yet another tiny Goblet. This actually went through a long series of errors.. the vibrations from the motor really kicked up and the blank was small to start with, and by the time I had any success at all centering and turning it was absolutely tiny (which is part of why the stem is so short!). It is very cute though, and left the house as a belated Christmas present.
I think this could be bloodwood, or Paduck. Not really sure.

I really like all three tiny goblets. Very well done. I’ve had my Delta 46-460 lathe just under 2 months now. So I’m still on a learning curve. I understand how a oops can change the size and shape of a turning. What size and type of chisels did you use for the three tiny goblets?

I like the dark goblet the best. Now make 6 just exactly alike for a set… (that’s what I have a hard time doing.)

They are very dainty and all nice.

I used a 1/4 in spindle gouge and a 3/8 in fingernail spindle gouge for hollowing, A 5/8 in parting tool for material removal on the stem and 1/2 in skew and the 3/8 in gouge for detailing (may have used the 1/4 in on the shallow coves as well).

HalDougherty, now that is a challenge. I don’t know that I could make a set without some kind of variation, but you never know until you try!
