These two identical goblets are made of padouk and walnut and stand 265mm tall. To achieve being identical, I turned one stage of each of them and put them again on the lathe to do the next stage until they finished, almost at the same time.
The rising shafts are single pieces and the little balls were added as two halves each.

When I do identical turnings I have to keep them quite a bit apart from each other and let the viewer think they are so. You don’t have that problem for sure. Nice crisp stain lines too.

Nice Sam, I can’t wait to share some work on pair of goblets I’m making as a wedding gift. Your segmented work inspired me.
