In this video I make a wedding goblet from a piece of Oak Burl and epoxy resin coloured with mica powder .. I was added to a challenge on Instagram by James Carter @stitchinturn.james to make a goblet for Rebecca Degroot’s upcoming wedding , it’s a tradition for woodturners to give goblets with 2 captive rings for a present and James thought it would be cool if they received some from a bunch of other makers ..I wondered about those rings for a second or so and then I realized the piece was called ; the wedding goblet and the two rings represented the two rings of the bride and groom and their wedding ! So cool!I thought that the epoxy was going to make the stem, and the wood the beverage-bowl. I am not sure I could ever force myself to drink out of a cup made out of epoxy. Even if there were a reliable source saying that it’s 100% safe, I couldn’t do it, psychologicallys. I’d be afraid of ingesting chemicals from the epoxy. That said, I’ve PROBABLY drunk HOT beverages from a hard-plastic coffee-cup before. And who even knows what’s in the “wax” coating inside a PAPER coffee-cup? Is anyone checking to make sure it’s really just wax?Daha az göster
