    Ain't there yet, but getting closer to Alfredo

    Haven't had a lot of shop time since the wife's surgery, but got in some a week back and finally finished these two little goblets..
    They're 7" high x about 3" diameter... turned from Honey Locust... at least I've found something this tree is good for... can't kill the d..... thing.

    Also finished two I made from spalted maple, but noticed that one got a little ragged around the rim and saw a crack running through the bulb, so I wound up with only one and not a pair as I planned.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Nice goblets Chuck! I think Alfredo has duplicating down pat.

    What goes around, comes around.

    Very nice work, Chuck. Much closer matches than I'd have been able to do.
