. Recently, my wife and I celebrated our five year wedding anniversary. As many might know, the traditional five year gift is wood. So, as a woodworker, I knew I better bring it this year. I couldn't do big furniture; we have enough. I wanting to try something totally new.
So, I set my mind to recreating the most used item in our house out of wood, a wine glass. I've never turned before, but I've always wanted to try. On the first attempt, I foolishly did the stem first, leaving the piece too unstable to form the inside of the cup. On my second attempt, I started with the cup, but the wood got too thin and shattered into a million pieces all over my shop. Not to sound like Goldilocks, the third attempt was just right and resulted in the final product (see pictures attached). July 2020
