But it is a goblet. Is it the very first one??

If so, its a darn sight better than my first one. That long ago provided a little heat on the woodburner.

What's the wood?

It looks pretty good to me. Not sure what I am seeing though, the stem is darker, is that a trick of the light or a different wood or what ?

It's a piece of Walnut branch it fell off the tree about 6 months back and has been on the pile to be cut up since it fell foul of me and the chainsaw on Saturday so its still a bit green.

This is the second one I have had a go at the first is a lot smaller and very basic more of a bantam egg cup size.

Thank you for the nice comments

Hi Matt, nice goblet, looks to have a nice shape and a good contrast between the heartwood and sapwood

Doh.....< insert thick smilie > Of course, thats why the stem is a different colour. The difference is quite striking.

There are wine glass shapes, goblets and chalices [and probably more], I'd say that's heading toward a chalice [wider I think] and as such it looks great, especially the wood choice.
