Turned goblet of maple burl, brown ebony, and amboyna burl (I think). Combination of finishes. The stem is very much in the style of David DeCristoforo (though lacking his precision and sheer delicacy).

That’s beautiful workmanship and wood grain. If it was any more delicate, it would fall over! I love it.

This is one of the nicest goblets I’ve seen. Excellent work. The burl stands out exceptionally well.

Wonderful turning Stuart. Very elegant and beautiful woods too. I am guessing the small burl in the stem is glued in there with small dowels. I’ve never thought of doing this, so I’m glad to get this simple but great idea.

Mike, thanks for the comments. I actually turn a small 5/32 tenon on the stem components. There is a picture on another of my projects (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/77438) which illustrates this. For practical reasons I would not want to go any smaller than this.

Yes, better yet Stuart. I’m sure I would have done the same after thinking it through, but I appreciate you making it even easier for me.
