I have 2 daughters getting married this year, and wanted to make these goblets with captured rings on them fo ceremonial toasting at their weddings. I have another piece of spalted maple in mind, but wanted to practice doing captive rigs first. I broke the first ring, was was able to get 2 more made. The 2nd was a little narrower than the first, but overall I as pretty pleased wit the result.

i like the look of including a little sapwood in the turning, just for contrast, and thought the light/dark differences make a nice allegory for the male/female coming together to make a single beautiful piece together. I hope they both have that kind of marriage and relationship. Maybe after sanding off the rough corners, and applying a few coats of finish! The sapwood is visible on the bowl, base and both rings. Last pic is on the lathe unfinished.

Thanks for looking. Always appreciate feedback, critique and advice.
