The red cup is figured birch with 3 layers of dye. The inside of the goblet and the stem is are dyed with a dark maple dye. The shorter goblet is maple base left natural with a walnut top. Both were turned for our Gifts of Art show for Dec at Gallery Uptown.

Yes the stems were turned from chair rails of maple. I use scraps of these rails to do these. They are fun but the stems are very time consuming
Thanks for all the comments

I think Roger nailed it with “Oh my!” Those stems look like a nightmare to create…

Those are fantastic. I was just watching a video by treesandclay on youtube about making these. Might be fun to try but my skills aren’t up to it yet.
