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 (http://masu-japan.com/about.htm). 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.

Step 1: Make Parts

Tools required:

  • Vise

  • Saw

  • Grinder

  • Electric drill

  • Forstner drill bit

  • Screw

  • Sandpaper

Materials required:

  • Dowel (Hinoki)

Step 2: Assemble and Finish

Once you assemble three parts, now time to drink!

Step 3: Enjoy!

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.

Where is the link to the YouTube video?
<p>Nice job, a beautiful champagne flute. Really great considering you didn't have a lathe or pilar drill </p>
