I finished this one up (Except the finish) and after I glued it up and completed the final assy, all I could think about was the times I head Paul say, if you see a nick or a overshoot of your knife, it just show that it was hand made…. or something to that effect… But it is amazing how many things show up after you put it together no matter how many times you dry fit.. LOL

Ha! Isn’t that always the way it goes. Well it looks nice in the picture. I don’t think I’ll be making this project, but I had thought that the joint between the base and upright seemed more complicated than it needed to be. But it does look nice with the mahogany strips meeting up.
Thank you Matt. The joint looks more complicated than it really is. That was actually the easiest feature to make. Gluing up the bearers and getting them formed was the challenge. Well, maybe more time consuming than challenging. I didn’t want to tie up my vice and only had one extra. So the glue up was one at a time. I’m going to try something different with the glass bearers on the next one. The top looks a little unrefined. And by the way…. where in the world did he get glasses with 1/4 inch dia stems? Even though Paul said to adjust for your glasses…. i didn’t. Better start listening to the master!
There’s a sticker on one of the glasses, telling they’re from Dartington: within the UK a well known brand. I quite like the Sharon Series, as I’m yet to break one of their stems.
Currently in London, I’ve some difficulties in convincing “The Search Engines” that I would dearly like to get in contact with US web sites offering wine glasses. Hence, I can’t provide a specific link.
Riedel offers a wide variety of wine glasses with stems sufficiently narrow for me to have broken on more than one occasion.
