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?
