    Sycamore goblets

    I am doing a demo Saturday; "Natural Edge Goblets" so made a practice run today. These were slinging water this morning but after a few runs in the microwave, they were ready for lacquer. The tall one is 7-1/4" x 3-1/4", the other is 6-3/4" x 3". Bradford Pear or Mulberry makes better looking goblets but I did not have either, the Sycamore cut nicely but is a little bland.
