I wanted to make a nice personal gift for my nephew to celebrate the day of his wedding, and this goblet is the result. The turning is made of maple and ebony. I was heavily influenced by the wonderful work of David DeCristoforo in the design of this piece.
It is constructed of 5 separate turnings. The ebony was sourced from a couple of pen turning blanks. I would like to have been able to use a continuous piece of ebony but I did not have anything in that size.
The maple has been stained with Transtint amber dye and sealed.
Thanks as always for the help and encouragement from the guys at the local Rockler store (Cincinnati).
