This was turned for a challenge and trade on another site but thought you all might like to see it too. Olive and apple were used for specific reasons. Both the olive and the apple I received in wood trades with various folks. Bottom and top were one piece. Sliced off the piece for the base and then turned the cup. Apple was a pen blank. I wasn't completely happy with the stem as it was so I added some red Rit dye to give it a bit more depth. Goblet is 3" diameter and 6" tall. Finish is Seal-A-Cell and buffed with all three compounds.
I feel like the base is a touch too large in diameter. I just didn't pay attention to it until it was too late to turn it down a bit more. I don't think you can see it, but there is a tool line inside the cup too. I basically got tired and didn't feel like sanding any longer. Other than that, what do you all think? Please share your thoughts so that I can make the next one even better.
