Had a bit of a slack attack this afternoon, and while SHMBO was out I decided to try a miniature Goblet.

The yellow one is made from Bauhinnia wood and when she got home she said where is mine, so I went and made a Jarrah one.

They are 1 3/16 and 1 1/8 tall, sanded to 400 grit and polished with Shellawax.

Just for fun.

Thanks for looking.

Bob.

Nice ones Bob, having fun is the best part of wood turning. Which one did you end up with?

At first look my thought was … Wow! that is one huge lighter! Glad your having fun! Nice work!
Our granddaughter would put that nicely turned goblet right into their doll house.

Nice turnings, great work. Do you have really small turning tools & wear a jeweler’s magnifier when turning these?
Just kidding, nice work.

Well I had a bit of a problem seeing these post also.
See Debbies Forum post.
OK now so that was quick work on the site management teams effort to rectify.

Is port in short supply or are you trying to cut down on drinking or is it for vodka and the lighter is used to enhance the flavour?

But they do look nice! .....too small for me to work I would have both hands busy holding a maggy lamp and other optical appliance so I could see what I was doing!!

Those are tiny. They must have been challenging. Good work.
