Gallery of Cups, Goblets and Chalices


As well as attractive objects to decorate a shelf, mantle, altar or ceremonial table, most of the vessels shown below are intended for the serving and consuming of adult beverages (water, wine, mead, bier, and the like). The finish is well cured (by the time you receive you selection) and is considered food safe - certainly suitable for cold beverages. However I would probably refrain from serving very hot beverages in them.

The woods employed are generally the same as those used for the bowls and other turned forms shown elsewhere on this site, including Texas Mesquite, Pecan, Oak, Huisache, Walnut and Bodark, as well as some "foreign" Mahogany and Maple.

If you like the woods I'm using in my turnings, you can buy similar woods through my other site, Texas Woodcrafts.net.

Mesquite Goblet 11-1



This is a very nice, thin-wall goblet turned from Texas Honey Mesquite. It is approximately 6 inches tall and 2 inches wide with a gentle diagonal grain pattern that carries thru from the small delicate foot to the lip of the bowl. The color is the strong Honey brown typical of Mesquite heartwood with a small light yellow "smile" of sapwood on part of the lip.

The finish has included sanding to 1000 grit, sealing with natural Danish oil, and then buffing and waxing to a brilliant shine.

Mesquite Goblet 11-3

This is another beautiful Honey Mesquite goblet. It is relatively large at approximately 4 inches wide and almost 5 1/2 inches tall. The color is entirely the rich honey brown of Mesquite heartwood. The grain is a very nice vertical pattern on one side but includes a lovely swirling, burly pattern on the other. I turned it with a flaring stem such that the bowl appears to "rest" atop the base.

It has also been sanded to 1000 grit, finished in natural Danish oil, and then buffed and waxed to a brilliant shine and a sensually smooth surface.

Mesquite Goblet 11-4

This is a very nice, smaller, thin-wall goblet in our Texas Honey Mesquite. That flaring cup is just over 2-1/2 inches wide and is very thin-walled. The stem is also lightly-flared and the cup gives the impression of "resting" atop the flared portion. The base of the stem is different in that it ends in a distinctive ring. The overall height of this goblet is approximately 4-1/2 inches.

The colors are the rich honey brown of Mesquite heartwood with two good-sized patches of lightly gray-spalted yellow sapwood (one on the cup and the other on the base). The grain is a very nice swirling pattern. This goblet has also been sanded to 1000 grit, finished in natural Danish oil, and then buffed and waxed to a brilliant shine and a sensually smooth surface.

Mesquite Goblet 11-5

This is a different and unique goblet in Texas Honey Mesquite. It was turned from a large section of brownish-streaked yellow Mesquite sapwood with a smaller portion of the honey brown heartwood. The sapwood included a section of darker-brown Mesquite bark on one side and a large portion was deliberately left on the outside of that cup. Yes - that is a crack in the bark on the outside but it does not carry thru to the inside of the cup. There is also a pair of small but distinctive black knots in one side of the cup that almost look like eyes!

The cup is just over 2-3/4 inches wide and very thin-walled. The stem is strongly-flared such that the cup gives the impression of "resting" atop the stem. The overall height of this goblet is inches.

The colors are the rich honey brown of Mesquite heartwood with two good-sized patches of lightly gray-spalted yellow sapwood (one on the cup and the other on the base). The grain is a very nice swirling pattern. This goblet has also been sanded to 1000 grit, finished in natural Danish oil, and then buffed and waxed to a brilliant shine and a sensually smooth surface.

Huisache Goblet 07-3


This gorgeous goblet was turned from Texas Huisache (that's Sweet Acacia for you folks outside Texas). The colors are beautiful shades of brown and gold in a graceful swirling grain pattern over the stem and one side of the bowl and a fantastic marbled grain pattern on the other half. It is approximately 3 inches wide and 5 inches high.

There are no cracks or other structural flaws, but this piece was turned from green wood and the bowl "ovaled" somewhat as it dried - so it is not perfectly round. Finishing included sanding to 1000 grit, sealing with a natural Danish oil, and then buffing and waxing to a brilliant shine.

Mesquite Goblet 07-4



This is a beautiful and graceful goblet turned from Texas Honey Mesquite. It is approximately 7 inches tall and 2-1/2 inches wide in the middle of its bowl. The grain pattern is a gentle swirling pattern that carries thru from the small delicate foot to the lip of the bowl. The color is the strong Honey brown typical of Mesquite heartwood.

The finish has included sanding to 1000 grit, sealing with a natural Danish oil, and then buffing and waxing to a brilliant shine.

Huisache Goblet 07-1



This gorgeous goblet was turned from Texas Huisache (Sweet Acacia for you folks outside Texas). It is approximately 5-1/2 inches tall and 2-1/2 inches wide with a graceful outward flaring bowl. The grain pattern is a delicate swirling pattern around the bowl and the foot. The color is the reddish brown with a hint of Rose, typical of Huisache heartwood.

A thin and tight, black-stained pith crack extends vertically up one side of the stem. This is a natural feature that was present in the original tree, was reinforced during turning, and is quite sound. The finish has included sanding to 1000 grit, sealing with a natural Danish oil, and then buffing and waxing to a brilliant shine.

Huisache Goblet 07-2


This is a very nice, tall and slender goblet turned from Texas Huisache. At approximately 2 inches wide and 6-5/8 inches high, it is tall and slender. It was turned with a lot of yellow sapwood as well as the reddish-brown heartwood.

It has no cracks or other structural flaws, but the large amount of sapwood on the bowl resulted in minor warping and flattening of the mouth of the goblet as it dried - so it is not perfectly round. Finish has included sanding to 1000 grit, sealing with a natural Danish oil, and then buffing and waxing to a brilliant shine.

Mesquite Wedding Goblet Set 07-2

This is a matched set of handcrafted goblets in Texas Honey Mesquite. Each goblet stands approximately 7 inches tall and 2-3/4 inches wide. The grain is a lovely swirling pattern, again with strong dark annular rings. The colors are the rich honey brown of Mesquite heartwood and the beige/yellow colors of Mesquite sapwood. One goblet has only small patches of sapwood, while the other has one fairly large patch - beautiful. The remains of a small, juvenile branch form an interesting feature in the lower, outside portion of one goblet (the right-hand goblet in the middle and lower photos).

Each of these goblets has been hand-sanded to 1000 grit, finished with a natural Danish Oil, and buffed and waxed to a brilliant shine and a sensually smooth surface. Each has been signed and dated by the artist (yep - that's me).

Texas "Bodark" Cup 06-1

This is a medium-sized, sturdy cup turned from a Texas Bodark tree (known as Osage Orange outside the Republic of Texas). It is approximately 4 inches wide and 3.5 inches high with very thin but strong sides.

The grain pattern is broadly swirling in very nice golden brown color. I turned two crisp, burnished black lines around the outside rim, to define the lip of this cup. I believe that it came out quite nice.

This cup is finished in a natural Danish oil, buffed and waxed to a smooth highly glossy surface.

Water Oak Goblet 06-1

This little beauty was turned from a piece of Texas Water Oak. It has a very round bowl atop a substantial stem and base. The stem and bowl are separated by a tapered bead and a black-burnished groove. This goblet is approximately 3 inches wide and 4-1/2 inches tall. The colors are a beautiful light golden brown with darker stripes of the annual rings and lighter, almost yellow stripes of the Oak "rays". The grain is a broadly swirling pattern.

This goblet had no cracks or other structural flaws. However, it was turned from green wood (as with most of my work) and has warped somewhat in the subsequent drying. The bowl is slightly (but distinctively) oval rather than round, and it does exhibit a distinct tilt when placed upright on a flat surface. (Note - one or two more drinks and you will never notice :-))

The finish included sanding to 1000 grit, sealing with a natural Danish oil, and then buffing and waxing to a brilliant shine.

Osage Orange Goblet 06-1

This beauty was turned from Osage Orange (known as Bodark here in the Republic of Texas). It has a very round bowl atop a slender but substantial stem and base. The stem and bowl are separated by a prominent bead which itself is set-off by black-burnished grooves. This goblet is approximately 3.5 inches wide and 6.5 inches tall.

The colors are a beautiful light to dark(er) golden brown in the heartwood with a large area of creamy buff sapwood. The grain is a tight swirling pattern in the heartwood which carries into the sapwood. On the outside of the bowl, the oval central portion of the sapwood sparkles with a beautiful iridescence when rotated in the light.

This goblet had no cracks or other structural flaws when turned, but has developed a small radial crack on the edge of the base. I have crossed my fingers and hope that it will not grow to disastrous proportions! :-) The finish included sanding to 1000 grit, sealing with a natural Danish oil, and then buffing and waxing to a brilliant shine.

Pecan Cup 05-9

This large, thin wall cup is turned from spalted Texas Pecan wood. However, it doesn't contain any "bug holes" or major flaws - just beautiful light brown to golden color patterns related to the nature of spalting. There is one small, tight natural "pith crack" on one side of the lip.

This cup is approximately 4 inches wide and just over 3 inches high. It is finished in a natural Danish oil, buffed and waxed to a high gloss.
