Wedding Head Table

Just finished a wedding WineO and the head table for a customer. at their request they didn't wont champagne glasses on the wineo, reason so they could use it for wine later. all brides maids are wearing dark blue so i came up with blues champagne glasses on cherry stems and didn't make matching set of 10 but matching sets to each couple. brides maid and best man glasses are made 1/4 inch taller than the rest with a bead just above center. Each member of the wedding party get to keep their glasses as a keep shake with their name, bride & grooms name plus dated.

Wedding WineO made from curly maple and cherry stems with captive rings. gold ring rimed glasses and a stainless steel bottle stopper.

Jeff man, that is absolutely amazing. You are an artist to say the least. As always, fantastic job man.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

That's pretty cool. What's the deal, do you buy just the upper glass part and make a base and slip in the glass?

Beautiful work!!!

If those folks put out the effort and money for what you made for them, I wonder what he rest of the wedding was like. I bet I would not have liked to pay the bill.

Really beautiful work. Very impressive piece of workmanship. I like the little wooden rings around the wine glasses.

Mike your right, that was one of my thoughts when i wrote the article for woodturning design, once published am i going to see them in walmart made form pine or balsa wood for $19.95 would piss me off. but hopefully they wont and woodturners would be inspired to turn their own to share with a special someone.

Cabinetman, yes that's how to make the glasses.

Thank you all for your comments.

Jeff,

The Wedding was last night and the Bride & Groom was amazed over the WineO & settings. a lot of their guest commented how elegant the head table looked. The Brides father told me there were two people wanting full wedding settings for their own kids weddings and three WineO’s for gifts next year.
Thank you for your comments

Jeff,

Jeff,
That wedding set is just absolutely gorgeous!
Sounds like you may be busy for a while. And, that's good.
Beautiful work and excellent photography.
Thanks for sharing it.
