Turning

Subject:
Suitable species for a goblet?

AZ in Colorado Springs
A friend asked me to turn a goblet for him (picture the one Indiana Jones selected at the end of one of those movies -- not too elaborate).

What's a good species of wood to use?

And what finish to make it water proof? (I don't know if he wants to drink from it or not. I'm wondering if there is a magic fix for this?)

Thanks
