Introduction: Original Way to Make a Wood Champagne Glass With Grinder and Electric Drill

In Japan, there is a custom that people drink Sake in “Masu”, which is made from an aromatic wood such as Japanese cypress called HINOKI ( So, I tried to make a champagne glass from Hinoki.

You can see the process how I made it with utilizing an electric drill and a grinder on youtube.

If choosing a large size of a dowel and a forstner drill bit, it is possible to make a wine glass.

I also want to enjoy the scent of Hinoki so that the glass is uncoated. Once the scent is gone, I am going to apply URUSHI (Japanese lacquer) to give it water resistance and durability.

Nice job, a beautiful champagne flute. Really great considering you didn't have a lathe or pilar drill

Thank you very much for your comment!
