Wedding Goblet Finish

My brother is getting married next week and I saw the episode of "Woodturning with Tim Yoder" where he made a captive ring wedding goblet so I thought I'd give it a try. He used a piece of 4x4 walnut - I didn't have anything this size except for a piece of pine and I couldn't find any dried 4x4 blanks online so I ordered some 3x3 pieces of KD maple and cherry.

I made a prototype / backup out of the maple. It had a little spalting in it - I kept the worst of it in the tenon that was turned off, but the wood still has some grayish streaks in it. If I blow up the cherry version and have to use this one instead - would it be safe to drink out of with a mineral oil finish? If not - is there a finish that would be safe after a few days? He suggested wipe on poly but said it needed 30 days to fully cure.

Thanks!
John

I use wipe on Poly but I don't think it takes that long to cure. When you can't smell it it's food safe. I don't have a good nose but I can't smell it after 24 hours.

Thanks for the comments. I think the local hardware store carries the salad bowl finish - I may give that a try since I only have 3 days until I am going to give them the goblet (plus I still have to try making the more ornate cherry version too).

I just found out my brother in law is getting married next year, so I think I'll try the wipe on poly on the maple one for him since it will have plenty of time to dry.

Got the final one finished, I think it came out decent but it was almost a disaster. I was parting it off the lathe and it got a bad wobble when it was almost through and I lost my grip.. It flew across the room and the foot broke off. Luckily it was a clean break and I was able to glue it back together. I hope it's not a bad omen.. I know they say the marriage will stay together as long as the rings don't break, don't know what the foot busting off means...

Possibly a broken leg during the first dance together? At any rate, that goblet came out pretty nice, i cant even tell where the foot broke at

I need cheaper hobby
