After turning the maple burl was first dyed black, sanded and then dyed with purple. It was then oiled and finished with wipe on semi-gloss polyurethane. The brown ebony stem was finished with a mixture of tung oil, BLO, and polyurethane. The piece stands about 14 inches high.

That is a beautiful goblet. the turning, especially the stem is fabulous. It is so delicate looking, and the details are very crisp. Great piece.

Wonderfully elegant turning. Is it all the one piece?
It looks gorgeous..

Beautiful piece. How did you attach the stem to the base and cup?

Thanks for the comments. The cup, stem, and base are all turned separately. I dish the top of the stem to fit the cup, and put a tennon on the bottom of the stem to fit into a hole drilled into the base. I then glue all the pieces together with 5 min epoxy.

Paul, my apologies I forgot to credit you for the recipe for the tung oil, BLO, poly mix that I picked up from your informative blog.
