Made out of Willow, Pine and Meranti. No powertools used. Glass beads are made on a stainless steel mandrel and are used in different sizes. I made this for a local artist, in line with her workshop.

Nice holder, some of those hand made beads are incredible
Have you any pictures of her work?

My son in law and his brother are good glass blowers. His brother is really a professional and actually gives lessons. I don’t know much about it but it sure is fun to watch them. This will make a nice piece for a shop.

Now that’s fancy. My wife and I do lampworking (glass bead making) as well. We use a piece of 2×4 with a bunch of holes drilled in it to hold our mandrels. I’d better make sure she doesn’t see this!
