Wooden Wine Goblets
Woodturner's Special

From 1982 to 1985, a series of wooden wine goblets were made. Porcelain cups were installed in the wooden goblets - these were made to be used for drinking. Wooden bases are solid, not glued. Color and grain on many are excellent. Nearly totally water-resistant, can be hand-washed.

Here are 12 pieces that were not finished or not shipped. One problem with the series is that the shape of the insert rendered them fragile if the piece fell over.
fabricate pewter, brass, or blown glass inserts with a tulip shape that does not contact surface in case of tipping.
All pieces are sanded and oil finished. A cleaning with fine sanding and oil finish is recommended.
