Wino rack for me

I like some good wine form time to time so I turned a walnut wine display with two Box Elder wine glass stems and matching bottle stopper




Jeff,

I have been working on a similar sort of set up... it looks good.

how did you make sure the glass was straight in the stem. I have a hard time with that.

This may sound silly, but how do you attach the glass to the stem?

I do it with 2 part epxoy. There is a little nub on the bottom of the glass and you drill and shape a hole that forms to the bottom of the glass part.

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.

Thanks Mike & John this is my prototype, I have seen a few with four glasses and four spindles with the wine in the middle but you can not see the wine bottle or type, those seem just to busy to me. I have friends that have very expensive wine and they display them proudly, with it open you see it all.

Jeff,

I agree with you on displaying the bottle of wine! I make and bottle my own wine, sometimes coming up with my own labels for it. So I would want to display the bottle up front as well. Very cool!

That is how I first did it, until I broke a glass (5 minutes after I applied the pressure) and still had 1 come out bent. I'll keep experimenting.

Thanks

Dvoigt,
I did have one that bent on me too. so i turned the just a little thicker, used dry wood so there's minimum amount of shrinkage, also if hole is larger than nib on glass I slowly rotate by hand so the adhesive will spread more evenly. mine cued the adhesive more on one side causing the glass to tilt.(i broke it apart to see what happen)

Jeff,

I have yet to try making these glasses but I look forward to when I do. I found some instructions on the craft supply USA website and thought I would pass them along.
