    Bottle Stoppers

    I'll have a booth at a Jazz and Wine Festival later this month; bottle stoppers seem like an appropriate item to sell, eh? Here's 24 of 'em, made from Bocote, Yellowheart, Maichiche, Maple, Spalted Oak, Redheart, and one from a piece of "Green Maple Burl" which took the finish nicely. Some are finished with Teak Oil, others with Arm-R-Seal. All Beall buffed.

    ...and a few personal favorites:

    Mark - nice variety of stoppers! I like your use of texturing! The Wine show sounds like the perfect place to sell these! Best of luck!

    Nice looking stoppers. I especially like the ones with chatterwork. I'm curious as to what these might go for at your show. If you think of it, perhaps you could report back as to your success afterwards. I'm sure they will all go quickly. Again, great work.

    These all look great, as do your letter openers. If you don't do well at this show, it won't be due to shoddy merchandise. You're going to have a nicely-stocked booth. Knock 'em dead, Mark.
