Glasses - Wood stemmed

Many of us have made wood goblets and some of us use them regularly in our homes. But most people typically drink from glass. This project area is about making wood stems to hold the glass portion of a drinking vessel. Using a wood turned stem is a wonderful way to dress up a glass.

And wood stemmed glasses not only wonderful around your own home but great gifts!

Many of us have turned wood goblets over the years. But if you've tried to find a good way to seal the inside of a goblet so that it doesn't leak, there are not many (if any) ways to do this. Most finishes will dissolve in alcohol and/or water which make them unsuitable for this purpose.

But there is an alternative... make a wood turned stem to fit your favorite glass. The result is a wood-stemmed glass.

This is a very easy process once you get over the hesitation to cut the glass. It's so much more easy than you would initially expect.

This project can be done with a single wood, or multiple woods. And it's very suitable for both segmented woodturning and ornamental woodturning so it's a great project for all woodturners.

I've been using wood-stemmed glasses in my home for years and love it. And they make wonderful gifts too!
