A set of segmented spiral stems for a good friend. Adds to their collection. All made from small scraps.

Neat wbbn.

Was glass broken to fit out (baseolectomy)... or are these to give afterlife to the useless, after the dropsy-oopsies from the heavy night before??

Really nice use of your scrap material! Could you share your source for the glass?...and how you secured the glass in the base?

I very much like the look of these with the wooden bases. Nice work. I too need to ask what happened to the base of these originally.

Nothing gets wasted. I cut the bottoms off and set aside. next project candle holders.

Thanks, I got all the glasses at a local $1 store. Have used them before and rarely do they break. To secure them I used a step drill bit to make the internal bevel match the bottom of the stems. Then drilled a 3/8 hole for the smaller diameter stem. Some 5 minute epoxy and all done.

I kept them and will use them as candle holders, a future project.

Superb those glasses,
Nice and original.
Great to drink a champagne out of, mind you I haven’t had a bad champagne drinking vessel yet.
Kind Regards
