Buckeye Goblet

This is a piece of Buckeye Burl with a dyed black walnut base. The goblet's dyes are black, green, yellow and a tad of golden orange. The inside is natural and the undercut rim was colored black with a marker so it wouldn't bleed. 1/16th thick and finished with tung oil and nervously Beall buffed. Thanks for looking and all comments are welcome, Don

      Great form and fantastic colour blending.

      I'm somewhat surprised the dye didn't soak through such a thin wall.

      Great combination of color, form, workmanship, and Mother Nature!
