Today was woodturning homework day. In the morning while Brent was at church, I made a goblet:



Bernhard had only challenged me to make a goblet, but as an extra challenge to myself, I put a captured ring on it. Fun! I'm pretty pleased except I think I could have rounded the bowl of the goblet a bit more to have a better shape.

The second part of my homework was another box. I had a few issues with the box while I was making it, but I thought I had gotten past them all when I was working on the finial at the top and I knocked it off the chuck and cracked the lid straight down the middle. Sigh. I glued it back and finished it, but it's not great. The proportions are also off. It's a little lid heavy, due to some of the issues I had. Oh well--learning experiences and all :)

I need to spend some time drawing out some shapes for boxes so I'm not just trying to "design" at the lathe when I make them.

Now I've washed all the dust off and am on the sofa with three cats. I should probably go make dinner soon.
