Make your own toasting goblets! #Food Porn#renaissance#steal-this-idea#toasting September 30 | Megan Finley meganfinley Screw toasting flutes — OBT member m_notes79 and her partner are going to be using these toasting GOBLETS that she and her future father-in-law hand made on a lathe! She explains: My future father-in-law loves to turn wood on his lathe and is always looking for a new project. He ended up making 5 goblets. (I got to help turn the smaller goblet of the two pictured!) Three out of White Oak and two out of Maple. The two that are pictured are the White Oak ones. I helped to finish the goblets with a salad bowl finish. These win for coolest toasting flute alternatives! Reporter Name * Reporter Email * Original text Enter the original text here.

Huzzah for a cool alternative! 1 agrees Reply What we are intending to put in the goblets is a mead type of wine called Ceaderberg Spice. (plus at the reception there will also be hot apple cider :D) Reply These are fantastical!!! He should put them on Etsy, I bet they would sell right away! So cool! 2 agree Reply Those are beautiful! I want some for myself! Reply we had one like this that my parents had a local wood artist make as a surprise for us to use in the ceremony (I had secretly wanted one but didn't dare pay the price I had seen the few advertised for). Ours had to loose rings that encircle the stem of the goblet, but the whole thing is carved from one piece of wood-symbolizing unbrokenness, unity etc. It is a an Irish wedding tradition that if you drink from this two ring cupped on your wedding, your vows/commitment will be blessed-it was such a gift that they went out of their way to do that for us.

I am now thinking I have to steal the idea, no matter how much the goblets might cost. We have a local woodworking shop, perhaps one of the guys there would do it for me…. Thanx!
