In this meeting of the GWA turners Special Interest Group(SIG), Steve Mellott showed the attendees how he turns oval goblets without waiting for the green wood to do it on its own. The process begins with a caarefully machined piece of waste wood. The finished product relies on the squareness of the waste core. Centers are marked on the core. The wood for the 2 halves of the goblet are glued to the core with kraft paper separators. Once the piece is turned round and the center hollowed out, the goblet halves are removed from the core and glued together. Impressive!
