Project Information

Here are a pair of wine goblets I made. Had to try another segmented turning after my last one did not turn out. (they say to get back on that horse so I did)

Left one is Walnut and Maple. Right one is Padauk and Maple. Each have 54 pieces for a total of 108 pieces of wood.

Walnut and Padauk are both from cut off bin (scraps) Maple is from a dresser I was given for the wood.

Dimmensions are: 9 inch tall overall. Stem is 4 inch tall X 1/2 inch with a 3 1/4 diam foot.

Picked up the glasses at GoodWill for $1.29 for the pair. I do love to reuse/repurpose/recycle. Just cut the stems off at 1 1/2 inch below the cup. After turning, Drilled hole for stem and glued in.

You can buy the glasses at www.woodturnerscatalog.com for $3.99 I have gotten a lot of good ideas from that catalog. haha

Thank You for looking. Please leave all comments and suggestions.

Scrappy, I have often thought about doing that very thing…....cutting off bowl..but I must admit, I never thought about leaving a tenon to insert the new stem….... Great idea.
Keep em' coming.

Thanks for the great coments everyone.

Brian, Thank you. Just for info, These did have 2 more rings that flared out above the ball to hold the glass. I you don't get them lined up perfectly they look HORRIBLE! Found out the hard way that is kinda hard to do without the stems. Had to cut the top off and get new glass, Drilled holes and here we are. Another "mid process design change" haha

Cabinetmaster, The idea was not mine. I enjoy going through woodworking cataloges. They are full of ideas. I am just frugal (cheap) and get my parts other places. haha

Jerry, Give me a call and stop by. Would be glad to get together again.

Thanks Again all.

Scrappy you did a great job ,A while back a fellow Ljs posted a project that sparked my imagination http://lumberjocks.com/projects/23208 , I did a little research and found some articals were they cut the stem and made their own bases .
After seeing yours I think I'll try my hand at some.

Thanks Scrappy for posting this and you did a superb job!!

Thanks everyone. Darryl, Your stoppers are what inspired me to try this. I might still make stoppers to match. I just have too many other christmas presents to do first.

Mike, Not too time consuming. Mostly, cut - glue - wait, cut - glue - wait. Lots of drying time.

RJ, I remember seeing those last month but forgot about tamboti also cutting his stems. Maybe my subconsience remembered. haha

Thanks again for all the great comments. Hope to see more of these from others.
