They are lovely, Woody. Are they fixed/glued or are they just pushfitted?

If I may get my negative thought out of the way first, I think they look a little unstable for general use [tall with narrow foot].
However, regardless of that personal view, it's a beautiful piece, lovely curves, great finish and I particularly like the lighter 'frill' on the stem.
Thanks for sharing, it's given me some inspiration.

Hi Mike I have tried them with fruit in and they are very stable even with grapes hanging down one side and the rest filled with fruit as a table centre piece as long as no one goes mad that is LOL

I like these very much a good colour match and lovely finish. I think the frills set the pieces off a treat please could you tell me how you achieved them.

first I tuned them then with a hole through the middle for a dowel to go though and a 3mm tall x 1mm lip on the edge then I used a diamond file to create the curves and a dremel to drill the holes in the lip
