This is a great spindle turned project and this small wine glass will make a great gift. Try out different embellishing techniques on the finished project.
The photo above (same as the middle at left) shows one I turned in late 2017. I dyed it black and highlighted the grain of the Ash with a pearlized white cream filler. It won a ribbon at a local county fair.
I have settled on this small wine glass form after a bit of experimentation. The size utilizes 10/4 (or 2.5″) kiln dried lumber and the shape is pleasing with proportionate size stem and foot.
After finalizing on this small wine glass form I create a template complete with dimensions. I then photocopied the pattern and glued it to a piece of stiff cardboard stock and cut out the shape leaving the negative template.
