    Maple Goblet (that drove me crazy)

    Here is that goblet made from Hard Maple I was whining about It is 7" tall and about 2 3/4" wide at it's widest point. (Sorry 'bout the pictures, I really need to set something up, when I get time of course)

    Great looking piece. It looks as though your trials and tribulations were worth it in the long run. And I bet you learned some stuff to boot!

      Nice,

      I have to practice making them that thin. I'm impressed with that one.

              Thanks guys.

              Yes I did learn quite a bit Ken. (Mostly that I have a lot to learn).

              I have nine more blocks of that maple stashed away, a little leary of the next project with it. It sure does finish up nice though.

              Making a few pens for presents, will post pics if I have time before I leave for Michigan.

                thats beautiful,are you going to mae a matching pair?
                is it possible to use for red wine and not stain?
                i made one of cedar but didnt use(have) any finish at the time.
                didnt look nearly as nice,i rushed through it

                  Very nice, Bob. Looks like you learned to work with the wood very well! I like the detail between the base and the cup.

                    That's Beautiful! and that finish is great... If you're comin' thru Oklahoma on your way to Michigan... you could drop off a couple pieces of that stashed maple

                      I'm really amazed at the craftsman ship I see on this site. Great job on the goblet and bowl.--Den
