    Humble offering

    Looking at some of the things you guys are producing makes me a bit wary of showing the things I do but what the heck....here goes

    Yew, 12" tall 1/8" dia stem, 2" dia bowl Sealer & wax finish

    Why be wary? That's an excellent piece of work. Very well done.

    Nicely done Pete! I've only turned a couple pieces of yew and I've enjoyed it. Those goblets are fun to turn and a good teaching tool for progression turning within a project!

    you have no need to be wary... those look good enough to drink from..

    I love wood turned goblets and wine glasses.. just haven't been successful myself yet... Great job.

    Look great

    12" tall, boy, those must have been fun to turn

    How tippy are they, might just be the pic, but the base looks smaller than the cup part...

    How is the Yew to turn?

    Cheers!

    Tall and slender. I'd love to see more of your work.

    A different background would have been nice here, as the goblet kind of blends in.
