Went to our monthly club meeting on wednesday and won two pieces of eucalyptus in the raffle not knowing what to make with it I took the advise of a club member and made two small goblets.

The goblet on the right is 5mm shorter than the other due to a catch,

Thank's for all your comments this has given me a big boost, Ron the clock is for my mother inlaws 42nd weeding anniversary, and to Simon the finish is sanded to 400 grit sand and seal and then clear wax was used.
When I put the clock insert in I noticed the minute hand was not working well gutted I emailed Meantime- Design on saturday to inform them and recived a email today from them with a apology and to say they have posted 2 clocks out to me free of charge to compensate now that is first class after sales.

I don't think I have that much "Time" especially when Paul Johnson 2 makes a Time Piece, I think he's rubbing salt in the wound ,, see his post.

Hi Bill, I'm not rubbing salt in the wound it's people like you and other forum members that give me the Ideas tips and advice to go up the shed and practice and pratice and one day it falls into place and as you can see I aint got the best kit but it got me started on a budget.
I went up the shed today with the idea of making a goblet I couldnt get to grips with it chucked it in the bin spat the dummy out and closed the shed door but I will return.

Thanks for your comments, Per I used oak as the main components and mahogany for the spindels, I agree with Bill and Derek on equipment but I started at the bottom so their is only one way and that is up now I got the bug.
Cheer's Paul.
