I turned this Goblet from a silver birch log that had been in the shop for a while, it had cracks through it so if I had any leftover resin I would pour some down the cracks .The splits in the cup of the goblet are already filled with the resin so it worked out quite well .This brings back memories of when I used to turn Norfolk pine and coconut bowls on a big ass lathe years ago. I miss that initial first blast of fresh slightly burnt smell of wood when pressing in the gouge on a new bowl and the warm blast of damp wood dust hitting my arms. Also the fight of holding the gouge when going through a knot. Ah, the memories.I started getting into pen making by adding a wood turning tool post to my metal lathe. The wood chips and sawdust went everywhere! My solution was to buy a small wood lathe and build a cabinet/stand with wheels on it so I could push it outside whenever I wanted to make a mess with it.
