Stem-less Wine Goblets
« on: December 24, 2011, 09:28:23 pm »
The Stem-less Wine Goblets are made from Mesquite from a cattle ranch just outside Wichita Falls, Texas. The wood came from the same branch of the tree. (No live trees are harmed in the making of any of my work)
I turn them on the lathe in the shop attached to the house. The wine glasses are finished with acrylic on the outside and a 2 part epoxy on the inside. The epoxy is designed to coat the inside of Beer Vats and is approved by the FDA for Potable water.  The finish is applied while still on the lathe and allowed to dry, then I wet sand to the sheen that I want, and then I polish them. They will hold about 16 oz. each.
Each is unique into themselves, yet still part of the whole

I made these for my Sister the Tree Hugger so I wanted to make sure she knew that all my work comes from recycled, reclaimed or saved from the land fill and is Forest Safe.

This is a great Project Michael.. A great example of repurposing materials to breathe new life into them.

Michael,

What brand is the epoxy and where can one buy it?  I'd love to turn some useful bowls and cups with an exciting finish but am always concerned about harsh chemicals and the whole food-safe thing.
