I finally got to the making wooden stemmed goblets.
After couple of years of collecting the wine glasses from Thrift stores much to SWMBO chagrin.
Starting off trying to figure out the safest method to cut the stem. I was told to heat it to melting then shock it in cold water. OR heat it then pull the base off. yeah NO.

Found a glass cutter in my fathers old tool box. pulled a scratch, then a quick tap below said scratch and voila. I now have two pieces, a base and glass top.

I made the stem from a 1.25” X 1.25” X 4”. The base was 3” X 3” X 1”.

The rest as they say requires a video.

Very nice. I like the idea of wood and glass combined.

Nice work
If you have a tile cutter it will cut the stems nice and easy. I use a small block to support the glass stem and cut away.

Nice looking glasses. I wondered for a long time how it was done or where the glass could be bought till a watched a video on the subject a while back.
