Are you trying to keep your guests sober? They must be uncomfortable to hold.

Still try anything new eh!

Practical or not, nice work Dennis. The off centre ones for me as well, I’m curious about how it’s done!

hi Andy

the way to wash them out is a soapy sponge and wipe the bole and gust a damp clothe for the stem.

Ron they are easy to hold as the of centre ones actually lock in to your fingers so you will not spill your drink.

Steve the way to do the off centre turning is simple turn your spigot chucking point turn the top part and finish then re chuck by putting the chucking point of centre and tighten the jaws as tight as you can. then turn the speed down and turn the next part then finish this as well then re chuck in the other way out of centre and continue till you are happy.

I am curious. When the stem is turned, what is the process of joining the glass to the new stem. How much of the old stem if any is used. "We're any glasses injured in the making of these pictures"

Joe.

hi Joe

there is about 20-30mm of stem left on the bottom of the glass. the timber is drilled and turned to fit the stem first then turned the out side to shape. and then it is silicone sealed in to the timber and up till now I have not broke any glasses but there is always a first.
