  • Different style?

    I love making goblets but tend to make thin stemmed ones. I started this one fully intending to go that way but decided to try something different to'get out of the rut.'


    It's cherry wood and stands 7" high. It turned on centre (if that means anything to you) and is natural edged (that means it has the natural wood around the edge at the top.

    Still trying to make my mind up whether I like it or not. Thoughts welcome

    I do like that. You've got me on two levels, 1. It's made of wood and I love objects made of wood and 2. It's an unusual design and I do like anything out of the ordinary.

      Very nice! I love the wood and I much prefer chunky over thin stemmed anything!

        Offcut of walnut, 4 high bowl dia. 2" I tried to base the design on a sort of Georgian look.

          It is most definitely different - a sure talking point and an object d'art. A wonderful piece of work which I like very much.

            I love it, it looks very natural yet well made if that makes sense.
            I can easily see someone drinking form it in an episode of Robin Hood.

              Robin Wood has that market all tied up I'm afraid. he turns in the traditional way on a pole lathe. I am lazy and use an electric one though I am looking out for an old sewing machine to try and make a treadle one.

                A little bit Dahli, I think... but very beautiful!

                  Dahli is possibly my favourite artist so I take that as a huge compliment Thank you

                    Really like the design, very natural and organic-looking.

                      Very organic, I think it is beautiful, I know three woodturners so really do appreciate the work that goes into wood. Also I can imagine how tactile it is too.

                      Well done.

                        Oooh, pretty, pretty! Lovely design, nice work...

                        Though I like the "chunky" one too - but I confess that I have a itch in my fingers to pyrograph an oakleaf pattern round it!
                        Cheers,

                          Like the first one quite curly and flirty, almost like a cala lily... would look excellent at a garden party

                            I've done afew of hese and am thinking of making a series of them and calling them Chantrell Goblets as they remind me a lot of the mushroom.
