    Also got around to finishing these...

    This is a couple of Chalice and Paten's I started back in 2013.... the patens were mostly finished except for the taking the tenons off the bottom, but couldn't figure how I was going to make the matching chalice... finally realized (actually LOML made me realize) the chalice's didn't have to be really as big as I was thinking... I had a couple of pepper mill blanks laying around that i could use that would work perfectly... These are turned from Ambrosia Maple, both the plates and the chalices... the plates were from a board and the chalice's from the pepper mill blanks.... they're finished with Tung oil and buffed with Carnuba. The inside of the chalices were painted with a plexiglas solution so they are coated and fully useable.

    The chalice is 8 inches tall and about 3 inches diameter, the plate is 10 1/2 inches diameter and one inch high.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.

    Not yet, I made up one for the pastor of our church and showed them on the web... I've had some inquiries about making more... right now they're listed on my ETSY store.
