    Finished the first step.

    I finally finished the first step of my goblet order... I have all 10 of the goblets turned and sanded through 400... all went very well until the last one... I had a small catch on the inside of number 10 with my termite tool.... caused the goblet to crack on opposite sides.... after a few choice words, I looked around and found one more piece of wood I could use... so number 11 was a success.

    I now have to finish them and get them ready for shipping.... the buyer wants an "engraving" on them... suspect they are either for a wedding or anniversary... I don't engrave, but offered to wood burn her "engraving" ... boyfriend/fiance/husband's name and hers, plus a date ... if she accepts and pays then I'll get started... I've sent an invoice so we'll see if she's serious... if not, then I have a set of Mimosa goblets to sell at the farmers market this summer....

    here are a couple of amateurish photos of what they look like....

    I'll put multiple coats of wipe on poly, clear gloss on the outside... the inside I usually add a plexiglass coating to make them food safe.

    They're 7 inches tall and most are about just under 3 inches diameter at the rim..about 2 1/2 at the base ... The wood is Mimosa.

    Man, you've been busy, Chuck. Looking good. That's a lot more duplication than I could do.

    Nice job on the duplicating.

    With my duplicating skills, I am just glad that "One of a kind" is a usually selling point.
