this is my latest project some wooden glasses two of them are wine glasses and 2 are champagne glasses. The wine glasses are made of black walnut and then the champagne glasses are curly maple. these were turned on the lathe I finished with Danish Oil & polyurethane on the walnut, lacquer on the maple. I used a combination of different types of Trans tint to get very good color in the second curly maple glass. the champagne glasses have captured rings around them that was all done on the lathe and they were finished before parting off. I used gorilla glue 2 part epoxy to glue the glass to the wood to give it a permanent Bond. this was another experiment to see if I could even do glasses one thing I did find, do not use cheap glasses from Dollar Tree as they’re not exactly even tolerances. The 2 walnut wine glasses were sold before the second was finished. the hardest part was to make sure that the glass was level when gluing it into the base this was done by putting a level on the top of the glass after checking the level of the table.
