A LITTLE GOBLET No picture No picture No picture No picture No picture
Zoom Pictures

This project was made from very limited timber available around my shop. An offcut piece of padauk and a broken billiard cue handle of African ebony and thin piece of Queensland ebony were put together on the top of each other and turned into this little goblet. 210mm tall. The little ball like, in the riser, was drilled with 10mm bit while it was 2 un-glued pieces and then glued around the riser befor turning. This means the riser is still in one piece.

Real nice Sam, great choice of woods. Was that a lucky find with the billiard cue.
