    Long, thin stem goblet

    Looks as though goblets are the thing of the day

    Just finished this for a competition at our club.

    Fruit wood, 9" tall, 2mm thick, stem is 3.5mm


    It was only after I finished it that I realised that the foot is actually offcentre, not deliberate.

    Very fine. I was going to kid you about that eccentric base. Now, I fret for your broke lathe.
    You should do well in the competition.

    That is a nice piece Pete. I wouldn't say a thing about the base not being what you thought it would be. I think it looks great the way it is..... like you intended it to be that way to match the top.
    Aloha,

    Thanks Pete, not only do I have to try to match Alfredo's duplication efforts, now I have to try and match your artistic efforts... you guys sure are raising the bar..... to uncommon heights.

    That is a fabulous piece, love it. I have to try a really thin stem next...
    Goblets are a lot of fun to make..
