    Very nice work, George. The handles look great, as do the bottle stoppers. I really like the red one on the back row with the ball on top.

    Good looking work George. What kind of finish do use on the stoppers?

    Thanks to all for the encouraging comments.

    The bottle stoppers are finished with Mylands Friction Polish and buffed with the Beall system. The tool handles are African Blackwood and just sanded to 600 and buffed.
