I'm a woodworker and I really like turning. While I've made some beautiful goblets on my lathe, I'm always a little leery about recommending them for actual drinking. On top of that many of them do crack because of flaws in the wood.
However, I've seen where people will buy fairly cheap wine glasses and cut the stem off, and attach them to some hand turned base. This can look nice and opens up a host of possibilities. However, I don't know the what method would work to hold the two materials together securely. Epoxy?
