Jarrah Goblet

I was given a small block of Jarrah wood, from Australia, i cut it in two and decided to turn a couple of goblets while i finished one, the other snapped because the wood is so hard and brittle, polished with 3 coats of danish but on looking at the photo looks like it needs more, or maybe different light? a bigger bit of this wood would look great as a bowl.

Gus, Cool idea on the pyrographic design work on your goblet. Great job.

Jeff,

Robo,
Looks nice, reminds me of a chalice. What did you snap on the other one? If it was like this one, I don't see any necessarily weak spots?

Robo looks very nice. Sorry the other one broke on ya. That is some very pretty wood. I can guess how you did the horizontal lines around the top but what did you use to make the vertical lines within them?

When Jarrah is cut very thin, 1mm i got a dig in with the skew chisel lapse of concentration i suppose, thr vertical burns were done with a piography pen and measured with the indexing on my lathe.
the Jarrah was ofcuts that were cut from old fenceposts imported from Australia.
Thanks for the comments

Robo,
I got news for you, just about any wood cut down to about a millimeter will bust out if you get a catch. Not very forgiving at that point. I have done the same thing a number of times. It's usually when I am pulling the tool out from the inside of a bowl and I start looking away to grab another tool and whack the side with the tip. I try to be more attentive nowadays.
