Default My first goblet

Far from perfect but I知 happy with it for being a first effort. Can anybody tell me what causes those light bands on the high point of the beads & cup? I知 thinking that a skew might given a better cut than a spindle gouge and prevented it.

Not sure if you are referring to the light bands caused by two different light sources as you photographed it or the early/latewood bands in the annual growth rings .

I can't really see anything wrong in the photos. Maybe not coming across properly in the photography.

I have seen the same thing on some woods Jay, so will be interested in the answer. Some, mostly darker woods but not always, give a lighter colored band at high points in the turned wood ie raised rings or sharp transpositions. I知 thinking it could be something like micro-tearing of the wood but not sure.

Just guessing here- if that is walnut, lighter wood is sapwood. I have a gun stock that has a streak of light wood in it.

Wow, that is beautiful. I'm still pretty new to turning, but have always wanted to do a goblet. Thinking of starting out with a shot glass.

What's the best way to make a wooden vessel usable for drinking?

Thanks for the replies. I don’t think the pics accurately show what I’m talking about.

Exactly what I was thinking, it’s at the high point of the arc right where it changes directions from going up, across the grain, then down, and just the opposite at the low point of the cove. I’m thinking damage to the wood at the transition of the curve is the cause which is why I was thought a skew might prevent it.

Thank you. I’ve seen videos and read where both a CA finish or coating the inside with epoxy that has been thinned with acetone will make a vessel suitable for drinking after it’s cured. I stress that I haven’t verified this, but the one who recommended CA is a very well known female woodturner. I’m sure there are members here that would know for sure.

On my screen, it looks wonderful!

As to your question, I don't see it, but I have had difficulty with Walnut with finishing/sealing endgrain. And the comment above to early growth/late growth is also to be considered. Fine points, but "buggers" to a great finish.

However, the profile and overall appearance is great!

Well done, thanks for sharing.

I've turned a lot of walnut and what you are seeing in the "color bands" are the growth rings (early/latewood). This goblet looks to be cut with the end grain on top and bottom so the growth rings show up along the length not across. Sapwood (white color) on Walnut will only show up on edges or ends of a turned piece not thru-out. Nice look but nothing unusual.
