    Another tall thin thing

    Had a productive weekend as SWMBO spent the time behind her sewing machine.

    Allowed me to produce this amongst other things

    Chestnut goblet. 12" tall, stem 1/4" dia, bowl part approx 3mm thick and 2 1/2" dia

    Sealer and wax. I rub the wax in then buff at high speed with an old shoe brush on the lathe

    Nicely done, Pete. I'll have to keep the shoe brush idea for future reference, too.

    Very nice goblet Pete! Great form, color and finish! Very nice work on the stem! Bet it wanted to flex on you real bad!

    Thanks Steve

    With things like this I do the bowl first then stuff it with tissue and bring the tail up. This generally holds it steady. Still need to cut gently though. Usually use a small, very sharp spindle gouge....carefully.
