Goblets

Wood goblets are very lovely turned objects of art. They are seldom used for actual liquids but hold a place in most turner's hearts.

You can also turn the base, the stem and add a glass top for creating a fully usable goblet. Several companies provide the glass for the goblet these days.

And if you're going to shoot for art, captured rings always look good on goblets.

 

 Turn a Miniature Ringed GobletTurn a Miniature Ringed Goblet by Bill Blanken
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.

 

 Natural Edge Goblets - revisedNatural Edge Goblets - revised by Brian Clifford
In this revisited project, Brian turns a goblet from the end grain of a tree limb. He uses the irregular nature of the branches that he finds for a wonderful, very organic shaped goblet.

Brian uses both drawing and photo's to show you all the steps necessary to get really wild looking goblets.

 

 Turning a Staved GobletTurning a Staved Goblet by Bob Pritchard
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!

 

 Long Stemmed GobletsLong Stemmed Goblets by Rich Hutchinson
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!

 

Turning a Goblet with Captured Rings by Joe Roig
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.

 

Turning a wine glass by Larry Marley
In this free video, Larry shows us how he turns a wine glass. The photo work is excellent with close-ups shots of all the stages of the turning.

In this article, Dan explains how he turns goblets. He even shows us how he creates his layout and uses the "golden mean" to do that.

 

 Natural Edge GobletsNatural Edge Goblets by Brian Clifford
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.

 

 Turning a long stem gobletTurning a long stem goblet by Larry Hancock
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.
