Pretty fire wood

The first piece I turned on the new lathe is a triple ring goblet.  I did three rings on this one, well, because I thought it would be cool… and more than two… and fun!  It is all of these things!

I am a bit sad that the beautiful knot goes all the way through the wood at the very center.  I am thinking that I will clear epoxy the tiny hole so the cup is still usable.  I also put two friction grooves in the stem.  That is new for me, but I like the way it looks, so keep an eye out for more pieces to get fancied up!  🙂
