How to Make a Wood Cocktail Glass in a Unique Way




About: I am a Japanese inventor who is specializing in hairbrushes. I like making things with DIY.

I made the cocktail glass in my own way. You can see how I did it on my YouTube.

Step 1: Roll Up

I used rattan strips to make a bowl & a foot part by "kentai" technique and a wood dowel to make a stem part with using an electric drill and sandpapers.

Step 2: Form

I made two coils for the bowl & foot part and then formed with pushing and sliding by hand.

Step 3: Apply Urushi

I applied urushi in order to harden the parts.

Step 4: Use an Electric Drill

I made a stem part and smoothed the other parts with using the electric drill and sandpapers.

Step 5: Urushi

I attached all the parts with rice glue-urushi and finished with urushi.

Step 6: Complete

Now enjoy to drink!
