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 it. You can see the process how I made it with utilizing an electric drill and a grinder on my YouTube.
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.
Step 4: Apply Urushi
I tried a little bit different way to make glasses, which is more completed.
