This was a mistake that worked out ok. I cut circles of cherry of difference sizes then drill 2 inch holes so I could insert the glass tube after finishing. I greased up the glass so the glue would not stick to the glas then glued up the rings over the glass tube. After the glue dried the glass would not slide out. I had drilled the holes to just the exact size of the tube, 2 inchs. The squeeze out of glue must of put to much pressure on the tube.
I said the hel_ with it and turned the vase with the glass in it. It did make for an easy glue up since the rings fit so tight and there was no way to get it out of line. To me it looks good and is water proof on the inside.
