    My first try at grabbing the corners failed. Probably because of the length of the piece - 8" including the gripped portion. I'll try that again, and...

    Well I picked up some nice maple and some poplar to try.
    8/4 maple was $4.85/bf.
    8/4 poplar was $2.78.
    8/4 walnut would have been over $10 / bf so I passed on the walnut.

    What wood would you recommend?

    It is time for me to make a new round of communion sets for people getting ordained in June. My current wood stash is mainly avocado, which is too porous for chalices, even with a poly finish, and...
