    And before you get bored,

    I made a set of ballon type red wine glasses on Sucapira stems and sold them earlier in the year. My last weekend at the market, the customer brought them back and said they had broken two of them and wanted to know if I could repair... I said no, but would make them two new glasses... these are the replacements... the picture with 3 glasses shows the original -- you can just barely see the crack in the rim... the two on the right are my remake - replacements.

    The little vase is a white oak burl that a fellow gave me.. he had a pile of burls that he didn't know what they were, but turned out that they were white oak burls... he had about a 4 ft tall pile of them, ranging in size from baseball size to just under volleyball size.

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

    All very good looking and nice work. Is the chalice intended for use or just symbolic display? If for use, what did you finish it with?

    The chalice can be used... the overall finish is polyurethane, but the inside of the chalice has a plexiglas coating that will keep the wines/juices from staining the wood. I've made and sold a number of these and they all seem to have gone over well.

    Thanks... I've got a pile of the little burls to work on... most are small and will probably be wine bottle stoppers, but have a few that I can do bigger things.

    Thanks for the compliment... I spend most evenings playing on the computer and when I'm not on a forum I'm usually looking at other people's wood turnings.
