    Captive ring goblet

    Ok I have always wanted to try doing one of these and we had a demo yesterday at our clubs meeting. Seemed pretty straight forward. I still have some work to do sanding the rings but the goblet turned out ok, I think. It is done out of a chunk of honduran gumwood that I saved from an old futon I once owned. Just a buffed wax finish on it so far I will do an epoxy inside so it is usable. Is there any other coating for the inside that is better than an expoxy?

    Drew really nice looking goblet.I've made a few goblets, but never a captive ring one. Did you use a captive ring tool or just a skew chisel?

    Drew,
    Love the rings... haven't tried them yet myself, maybe next year..

    I don't know if it's better or not, but I use a plexi-glas solution inside my goblets... it's the same solution some use as a finish on their pens... I never could make it work on pens, but it seems to do good on the inside of my goblets...

    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    I made the captive ring tool out of an old round file that I had. Flattened the end like a skew and then filed the ring groove into it. I need to make it bigger though as it was a chain saw file that I used and it just wasn't big enough.

    Is that stuff food safe so that it will not react with drinking liquids?

    All critisisms welcome Jim. I was just playing around with the shape as i have not turned a goblet before either.

    I bought the futon when I was a single dad raising two boys and I was tight on space living in a small one bed room place. It served it's purpose then and is doing it again now. I am going to make the kids something special out of the futon as it was a kind of special time.
