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.

Dust Right® Dust Separator

On Sale for only $59.99

Save $40.00

List Price: $99.99

Turn any shop vacuum with a 2-1/4'' ID outlet into a 2-stage dust and chip separator. When used with most power tools and shop vacuums, the Dust Right® Separator captures sawdust, wood chips, and other debris before it enters your vacuum, preventing the loss of suction power caused by a clogged vacuum filter. The five-caster base makes it exceptionally stable and easy to maneuver around the shop. Plus, hoses connect inside the in/out ports, preventing unintentional disconnections. The Dust Right® Separator creates a cyclonic air flow that causes most wood dust particles and other materials that are heavier than air to separate, preventing them from being passed to the vacuum. The vortex effect that is created prevents the loss of suction caused by prematurely clogged filters

Micro Dust Air Filtration System

On Sale for only $599.99

When set at the lowest setting, the system is about as quiet as a library, and when on high, it's quieter than normal conversation. Unlike most other air filtration systems, the PM1250 is portable and freestanding, meaning you can carry it to wherever filtration is most needed, then simply set it on the floor or the bench. The angle is adjustable using the knobs on the side of the unit. If you like, it can also be mounted to the wall or ceiling.
