So I have a habit of not settling for the standard use of tools or ideas. This is one of those instances. I discovered inside out turning and immediately thought I should try and throw some glass in there and see what happens. It worked out pretty well and I think I will do a much larger version with a little more thought put into the design. Below is a video of the project. Let me know what you think.

Very clever.

Interesting. You must turn the outside first to fit the glass, then reverse the pieces to give the shape you want, then assemble. Good thinking and nice job.

I think it is a great idea, have wanted to try that type of turning for some time.
