Jay Scott has been very busy working in his shop and sent in some pictures of a series of Goblets. Thanks Jay for this.


Hello HCT members. I’ve been working hard the last few years, but I’ve been slow in sharing. Around sixty projects. Not all are worth sharing, but I’m getting a few groupings to begin regular contributions with minimal descriptions. Since it was one of my first purposeful projects I will start with goblets.

Though I’ve only made four, I’ve really enjoyed making goblets. The first was an ambitious attempt to make a 13″ goblet for a wedding gift, using a budget chuck, and way too little experience. After about nine ejections from Cheap Charlie, the resized maple goblet was complete. It was too long ago to recall the final details.

The second and third were commissions. One being maple, with my first captive ring. The second was ash, dyed brown with a hint of red, using Keda dyes. This one was a success. I wanted to keep it for myself.

Last, my Goblet of Detest. I’ve not used my creative work to express anything in particular, since my photography days. This broke that hiatus. It stands 270mm tall and 65mm across. It was sanded to 320 grit, dyed with Keda black, blue and red pigments, sealed with shellac, polished with Yorkshire Grit regular & microfine, then finished with Hampshire Sheen food safe wax.
