Just expeimenting

I have a few cut branches someone gave me they said it was oak I'm thinking live oak. I like the Hurricane glass /lamp styles and was just playing around to see how the wood would look.

I'm guessing I should finish the upper part in and out before cutting the stem and, foot and cutting off the piece from the blank. I didn't do that this time.

Here's a few pics.

Rich, when turning goblets/glasses, start with your piece in the chuck. Turn the basic shape of the outside and then hollow out the goblet. Finish the inside. Stuff some papertowels in the goblet (enough to protect the bottom from the point of your cone center) and then snug up the tailstock. Turn the stem/foot. Sand and finish. Part off.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

I love making goblets but people don't want to buy them so every do often I just turn one for the heck of it. I helped a friend do some segmented ones for his wedding, nut lost the pic of the old computer. I'll see if I can get him to send me new ones.
