Wine glass bowl finally done

I started this bowl August 1st , then Murphys law came along . Anything that could go wrong did. First I made an octagon and glued a piece of cherry to each surface . While turning it , one of the wine glass shapes disappeared . Then I removed them all and installed two rings of cherry . Well while I was turning this I lost some of the ring . So I grooved the rings deeper and installed the cherry . By this time the bowl was so thin it warped and blew apart . First time I lost a bowl. I made another octagon and was able to get the pattern I wanted 8 wine glass shapes . I had to inlay the stems .

Woods: oak cherry

Tools: sliding compound saw scroll saw router lathe

I’m hoping you didn’t get hit by the bowl that blew up. Very cool turning Bruce.

Very nice piece, what kind of finish did you use?

Very cool project Bruce as are all your other ones.

While having all those problems with this, did it ever occur to you that someone or something DIDN’T want you to make this ,.,? LOL

I was beginning to think it just wasn’t supposed to be , but then it did . . As far the finish, 3 coats of polyurethane .

Very nice!
I’ve done a lot of turning but have no imagination, you must of had a lot of forethought before turning Your masterpiece

Sometimes you need a prototype in order to get the final product right, which this certainly is – it’s right as rain. Nice work.
