Got Woodturning magazine through he post a few days ago and liked the look of the goblet in there, so thought I would have a go. Haven't done the twist on the stem as I don't have the tools to do it. Bowl and foot are cherry and the stem is bubinga. Comments welcome. Andy.

Looks beautiful. I love the colour contrast of both woods. You've managed to get it very thin in both the boblet and stem which must be tricky.

Excellent piece of work. I have the same goblet on my list of things to make - probably in the New Year now. If I get anywhere near as good as yours I will be well chuffed. =D> =D>

I agree, but I don't like the contrast of the woods - I'd prefer it in just one timber.

Got a small set of rasps today and had a go at the barley twist. Very time consuming, but the results is ok. I'll do the barley twist on the next goblet. If all goes to plan, I'll post it on here.

Thanks for the nice comments.
