This is my first commissioned job, twelve wine glass holders. I made them for a co-worker. Her daughter’s wedding was this weekend.

-- While teaching a class, a gentlemen once asked me: "When chip carving an intricate design, what do you do when you are almost finished and the wood breaks off?" I replied "Cover the kids ears."

Beautiful wine glass holders. A suggestion….put that last photo first so it is the one that appears with the project on the LJ project page. It will get a lot more attention.

Cheers, Jim
