Building a staved goblet

Total directions for building staved wooden goblets.
Right here I am going to display how I build staved goblets related to this pair. These are a good deal of entertaining to make and are not virtually as challenging as they appear. They are not any various to flip than a normal a single piece goblet after their glued up but you will be carrying out a bit of woodworking ahead of time.
If you develop a single send me a image.

This is the real goblet I will be constructing right here. This goblet is a minor bit simpler than the pair over only since it is produced with fewer pieces. The goblets above have veneer in among the staves.

This 1st picture demonstrates the wood required to start the goblet. It consists of 9 pieces of wood which are 1/2″ x one/two” x 9″. Five of a single colour and 4 of the other. They need to all be straight, flat, and have parallel edges. Now they require to be glued with each other to make three pieces.

The next image beneath displays how they require to be glued collectively. Notice how they are not all the identical. The bloodwood is in the middle on the center block while it is on the outdoors on the other two blocks. This is simply because the bloodwood in the center block will be the goblets stem.

After the glue dries you can glue these 3 pieces collectively. Be confident they are flat. If you want to proper them get off the least sum you perhaps can. If you decrease one particular, minimize the other folks so they are all the same. If you do not the completed pattern will move over. If you can’t get them alike will not be concerned about it as I often make them a bit diverse just to move the pattern more than but the adjustments have to be minimum. The picture beneath shows them glued collectively. The pattern on the finish rather much tells the entire story.

Up coming we will include 4 pieces all around the outdoors. These pieces will also be 9″ lengthy (Or as extended as you created your very first pieces). Usually they will be three/four” thick. The width will be the width of your completed block plus three/4″. So if you created yours the same as these instructions they will be 3/4″x 2-one/4″ x 9″. The photo below demonstrates the 4 pieces currently glued on.

Recognize the orientation of the Peruvian walnut blocks in the photograph above. They ought to be glued in this orientation or the goblet will not look right. If they lap like this the finished goblet will lap also producing a curve at each corner rather than a straight line. Even 45 degree corners Will not perform simply because they will also make straight lines.

Note: Mine above appears incorrect since they are hanging above. Normally at this stage you would have a square. Mine are only hanging over since they are also thick. I didn’t bother planing them down. The turning method will get care that so it is not an situation.

Up coming were ready to flip the goblet. It would be nice If we could just mount it into a chuck just the way it is but we can’t do that. If it was a one particular piece goblet thats specifically what you would do but in this case it almost certainly won’t perform. Reason being if your glueup is off the pattern will not be centered. And it doesnt have to be off considerably. So, The best way is among centers. Draw an x across the corners of the small 1/2″ x one/two” bloodwood block in the center on each and every finish. The far more correct you do this the better it will turn out. I use a utility knife for these lines rather than a pencil. A pencil usually marks off to the side no matter how sharp you get it. Then use an awl at the intersection. Significantly easier to line up your centers this way. Now mount it amongst centers.

This picture displays the blank mounted among centers. A tennon has been turned prepared to mount in the chuck. Note: For new turners. This piece is not mounted in this chuck. If you seem closely you will see a drive spur mounted in the chuck. I only do it this way since I have a vacuum adaptor in the spindle. The adaptor stays in the spindle all the time so I can not use a normal drive center with a morse taper.

After mounting it in the chuck I turned and completed the piece as standard. Be positive to hollow the cup area prior to the stem will get as well thin. We came this far so it would be aggravating if you lost it now. The only thing to view out for comes right at the finish. When you get started to see the stem color you have to end the lathe frequently to see the place your at. If you flip also far you could shed part of the pattern.
Good luck!

By using the same technique described above for making staved goblets you can make this bud vase. Woodturners get in touch with this a weed pot. It is not fully hollowed but has a hole drilled in it. People use these to hold dried flowers but if you size the hole properly you can add a plastic check tube permitting you to place water in it and use it as a bud vase.
