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
Forstner drill bit
- 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.
