    We've had some pretty nice weather

    this past couple of weeks, so I did get in a little shop time. I've been touring the habitat, humane societies, area ministry stores and stocking up on glasses to re-purpose. These are a few I've gotten done....

    This set of 4 are about 6 oz capacity and just over 7 inches tall....they originally had dark green stems... once cut off and set on the wood stems the only place you can see the stems are the dark green dot in the bottom of the glass... the stems are Lourdes Canales... a nice golden wood with a great iridescence.... finish is gloss polyurethane.

    This was a really fun pair to make.. you don't often see black champagne flutes... found them in a local KARM (Knoxville Area Rescue Ministry) store... the stems are again Spectraply "Onys" pattern and finished in poly. These are 9 3/4" tall.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
