That is pretty cool I saw a guy on PBS making small goblets like that been trying to find back episodes to watch online but no success.

Nice job Robbie. That looks like its small. How thin is the stem?

When it's rustic......it's rustic

OK now that is impressive. To turn that stem that long and thin without screwing it up looks tricky.

Nicely done Robbie
Is the stem and the base one piece?

I just couldn't tell in the pic.

Learning more about tools everyday

Very nice Robbie, When it comes to natural edged items I really fail. Someday it will come together.

Greg here are a set of videos by Bob Hamilton showing him doing a goblet. I've watched a lot of his videos and have learned a lot.

Thumbs up

Looks great Robbie, has it moved any since turning it?
For those that don't know the Blackthorn
is also used for Leprechauns Shillelaghs(sp). And the
berries can be used for Sloe Gin I believe.

That's impressive. Having recently turned my first goblet I know how hard it is to do. I like this one a lot.
