Nice turning – I bet that long stem was a bear to turn.

That is a very nice piece of design & turning Roper, quite a tall piece as well @ 18”.
Well done

Wow, how thick is that cocobolo stem. I sure would be afraid in my clumsiness I would break it. It looks really good.

When I first saw it, it reminded me of the brass pegs I used to hold together the deer picture and stand.

Thank you very much everyone. Kelly the stem is 1/4” , i will admit that it took me a couple of tries to get to a finished product.

Just beautiful!

I have been wanting to turn a thin stemmed goblet for awhile but not sure I have the skill nor patience.
