It’s just a sip away

2014-10-11 18.00.12I had so much fun with the other goblet I was thirsty for another one (just a bit of humor?) I have watched Mike Waldt turn goblets lots of times and it didn’t look that hard. Wrong. I grabbed a walnut chunk and started turning. I had the goblet part turned nice and thin, sanded and finished and it looked great. The trouble was the spindle. I started taking it down and when I got to the diameter I wanted, it snapped. I’ve learned not to let things like this upset me so I just threw it on the bench and promptly moved on to something else. A few days later I decided it was too nice to trash so I just turned a separate stem and base for it. I like the way it looks probably better than had it stayed together the first time.
