Yep. But truth be told, the hollowing part comes first. It's cutting from the outside afterwards that's the delicate part. Here's a view from directly overhead to give you an idea of how thin the wall is.

Yeah, you won't be spending a lot on booze drinking from this goblet.

I'm not even going to talk about owning a lathe anymore.

I stumbled upon this little guy I made awhile ago. Then I remembered this thread and thought I'd squeeze some life back into it. I must have made this after the little goblet on page 2, 'cause it's smaller and more refined. About 1 1/2" tall.

I've been making some bolt-action pens as a neat raffle prize when we go trapshooting. The little "bolt action" mimics a rifle bolt action and is the mechanism that extends the pen into writing position. Anyone else try turning pens? They don't take too long and are pretty well received by others.

I like it Kurt.

I've made a few pens but my lathe has been geared for larger bowl turning. I've been tempted to try to add another set of pulleys so I could speed it up for pens. I've been wanting to do a bolt-action.

You could make chessmen, Kurt. Well, the knight might be problematic.

I am not so talented but I can make a cut with a skill saw. I had a left over Kitchen cabinet that I took apart and used the pieces to build a guitar cabinet.
Not perfect, nor finished, but quite functional, with the emphasis on Fun!

First time tryout:

I bought an amp to install in the cabinet along with a new speaker. Should be quite fun when I get done.

If it's fun, the time zooms right on by when you're working on it, hey?
