A pair of goblets made from spalted beech. Featuring two captured rings, and finished with a food safe oil.

Here is the link to my youtube video explaining how to form captive rings; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rnMigLdqww0&feature=plcp

Thanks Dave, I think you should have a go at turning sometime, it’s relatively easy (compared to joinery) to achieve great results in projects.

The spalted beech is just as strong as ordinary beech (normally) however the end grain of this particular stock was quite weak and just peeled right out when I hollowed the goblet.

The rings are a nice touch!
Cheers, Josh

Thanks again helluvawreck. Yes I always enjoy cutting those rings loose from the stock. Such a thrill!
