Dvoigt, I made a jig for my lathe which inserts in to the mouth of the glass like a jam chuck for my tail stock, after stem is turned i jam chuck it the the head stock. take the glass, press it in to the stem carefully with the jig i made for my tail stock and wait for adhesive to start to set and remove let finishing setting up on my work bench.
John, the adhesive is silicone base so the wood can move a little without putting to much stress on glass
the wine glass i bought from the dollar store and cut the stem off but leaving a 1/2in left on the glass, instead of paying $4 or $5 a glass form craft supply
I plan of making a few of these for Christmas for family and friends.
