    Well spotted Woody .
    Thats' a nifty wee 'eccentric chuck' method he has there.

    I 'spose a longer piece could be supported with the tail stock center ,
    and then the cup hollowed out last .

    Thumbs up Goblet

    That is a great video! I've seen turners do this. Will have to try myself one day.

    So many things to try. So much wood to turn. Just one magic ingredient missing.... and when I find time to work out what it is, I'll let you all know!!!

    well , it might , if the piece was a fragile as the one in the video .
    Goblets are not the only things that could be turned in that fashion .
