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.

Turning Twisted GobletsTurning Twisted Goblets
By: Nicholas P. Di Mona
In this tutorial, Nicholas shows us how he turns the bowl of a goblet and then cuts and stands the stem before turning the base. This technique makes a goblet that is a lot like offset turning but without all the fancy turning. These goblets are very clever and can take all kinds of shapes.

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!

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.
