old dog, new tricks *LINK* *PIC*

>I have been turning for 15 years and have turned just about all styles untill I saw the article in this months AAW mag. on how to turn goblets. I realized I had never tried, so I gave it a go and was very surprised what a challenge it was. Not as easy as it looks.
Here is a pic of my first one.
6" tall Bubinga and ash. Gel urethane finish.
The base of the stem was to small, so I added more bubinga to the bottom.
Next time I think I will try to do one piece. However, I do like the two piece method as it opens up more design possibilities.
This old dog is happy with his new trick.
Thanks for any comments. Joaz
