The idea for these came when the wife dropped a wine glass and the bottom broke off but leaving the glass and stem in place. She felt bad even though it was an inexpensive glass so I got the idea to save it by turning it into a small candy dish. A little roughing of the short stem with sandpaper and then a good dap of epoxy into the wood and let dry. Both of us liked it so off came another base of a larger glass to make another. I used a diamond bit in a Dremel tool to cut the base. The wood is Black Walnut and finished with satin wipe on poly on the small one and Tung oil on the larger one. A simple little project but it was really fun to make.
