In this project, Bill shows us how he turns a goblet and leaves excess wood to create a ring on the stem. He then undercuts the ring until it is freed. He then sands and cleans up the project to finalize his miniature ringed goblet.
Many of us like turning wood goblets. Even though most of them are not actually usable, they are fun to turn and they are easier to turn than they appear.
In this tutorial, Bob Pritchard, steps it up by creating his own turning blank from staves before turning the goblet. By selecting contrasting wood colors, he is able to turn very attractive goblets that will be sure to get a second look from your non-turning friends, family and even customers!
In this project, Rich explains how he makes long stemmed goblets. And when I say long, I'm talking about goblets up to 16" tall. If you're interested in tool control and fine cutting, then Rich has something to show you!
In this 4 1/2 minute YouTube video, Joe works at ultra-high speed and turns a complete goblet. You will be able to follow most of the steps but since it's so speeded up, it may be hard to catch everything. But no worries, using some of the other tutorials (either goblets or captured rings) in our projects list will allow you to pick up some of the fine details.
In this project, Brian describes the steps in turning a natural edge goblet. He also stresses the issues around natural edge vessels that you might not experience with other types of turnings. He uses some very nice line art to explain different parts of the turning.
In this photo tutorial, Larry shows how he makes a long stemmed goblet. He gives several examples on how to hold the stem as you're turning it to ensure that it doesn't break. You can pick up many good tips in this article.
