My turn to gloat

This is just a small gloat. I really did not do anything world shacking but it quite an accomplishment for an old man with arthritic hands.


The lip is 1mm thick and the stem is 8mm.
My son and I built the CNC machine that I cut this on.
Regards
Joe

My Gloat

I went garage sailing and found 24 wine glasses at one place for $5. About 1 place in 4 has stemware of one size or another.
We have a diamond blade bandsaw from our jewelry business and I used that to cut the stems off. The top is set in epoxy.
I had to make the wood base a little larger in order to stabilize the glass so I cut a 1/4" ring and added it to the base. I raised the stem up above the ring 1/8' so the glass now sets on the just the ring. It is a little hard to see in the picture so i added another



I don't take good pictures but the ring has not been finished. I have to put a few more coats of Walnut Oil on it.
Thanks for the comments fellows.
Regards
Joe

Here is a source for stemware if you don't have the ability to cut it yourself.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...
