Double Ringed Wedding Goblet (pics)

It's 6" tall, silver maple wedding gift for my niece. Now that I look at it, I thinks it's a little short and stubby but since you can't put wood back on

Tim,

I think it looks good!!

Amazing the way you can connect the rings together. I understand your previous posts now....

It is something that I think she will love!!

Tim, Great work. The goblet turned out real nice. I think your niece will love it. People like the shop built stuff because it comes from the heart.

Tim,
Nice looking piece. I don't think it looks short and stubby. If anything, the base is a bit too wide. Next time just cut the base down some and maybe thin the stem out just a tad. I would leave this one alone, however. I don't like to press my luck once I have finished a piece. I think she will be thrilled with it.

I don't think I knew that silver maple had quite so much figure to it. That wood really has some nice patterns and swirls to it. What did you use for finishing?

Thanks all.
Mike, I left the base a little larger than usual to see how it looked. This will be the last time.

John, I use wipe on poly, clear satin.

One thing I didn't consider when doing two rings is that you have that much less room to work the stem. Some micro tools may have helped as far as that goes.

I like the overall shape and it is a nicely figured piece of wood! You did one heck of a job and I'm sure she'll love it.

I think it's a nice goblet. I might have made the stem longer if it was mine but I really like long thin stems and some people don't. There certainly aren't as strong and yours looks just fine to me.

can you tell me how you did the locking rings? I just made a matched set with a single ring as a wedding present, but your locked rings is a much better idea.you did a wonderful job!!

sirrom, you just have to break one of the rings, interlock them and glue it back together. As was explained to me, it's easier to hide you joint if you break it rather than cut them.Thanks for the kind words.
