In the spirit (pun intended) of the New Years celebrations, January's theme is drinking vessels. Post a picture of your goblets, glasses, mugs, drinking bowls, etc.

Anyone may post in this thread, but there is another thread with prizes for more advanced turners, so even if you are new to turning, post your creation. 1 entry per member. Please provide a description, including wood(s) and other materials used as well as the dimensions of the work. Prizes will be awarded. Entries in the Advanced showcase are not eligible for the Open Showcase prize(s).

Note –  Anyone winning first place in the Open competition 3 times will be only eligible for the Advanced contest. 3 time first place Open winners should only post in the Advanced contest thread.

This is a wedding goblet I made for my cousin out of Chitalpa and had engraved. The captive rings finished darker than the rest of it but I swear it was all one piece of wood according to the tradition. I'll also follow up with another couple of items. Jim

This is where it resides in their apartment in its place of honor in front of a stained glass window that came from one of his dad's (retired minister) churches.

Those didn't work, so here's the legend I sent with the goblet. There are several versions you can find online.

This is a functioning bottle topper that also serves as a functioning shot glass. Made out of White Oak to look like a whiskey barrel. The inside is charred and finished with just Mineral Oil so it is to be used. It is made to hold 1 1/2 oz.
