    A couple of wood goblets

    Also did a couple of wood goblets for today's craft show... didn't sell them, but got lots of compliments from the lookers.

    The first one is from Mimosa... first time I ever turned Mimosa... the wood's a little soft and a little stringy, but did turn nicely. I rubbed the goblet down with BLO before I used the polyurethane... I still see a couple of tool marks on the inside after I got the finish on... still need to work on the hollowing of my goblets. The goblet is about 6 5/8 inches high x 3 1/2 inches wide.

    The second is from Dogwood... that's pretty hard wood, but I really like the way it turns. This goblet is 7 inches high and 3 1/2 inches wide. Finished with wipe on poly and buffed with carnuba.

    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.

    Great looking goblets Chuck. I like the first one. I have turned mimosa several times and really like it.

    The mimosa one is my favorite of the two. Cool-looking wood.

    I agree with Bernie. I like the wood and the design of the Mimosa.

    Since the Dogwood shows more bland, more detailing would be in order. Just my opinion, not necessarily a rule.
