From Wine to Candy

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.

Wow! What a great way to save a wine glass.

I always love it when someone comes up with an idea like this to re-use something that would be other wise thrown away. Great job.

They look great and thanks for sharing them with us.

The problem is that I would not have the glass full for long.

Very nice idea. The question is: how many wine glasses still have their bottoms? :)
