Here are my first five bottle stoppers. Man, are these things fun to bang out! I thought a pen was a quick and rewarding turning, but these are even better! Gotta get more imaginative (or more plagiaristic) in my design though!
I'm following an article I downloaded from somewhere, and the author's recipe for finish is to put on several coats of thinned Deft and wipe it of at fairly high speed, then polish with Myland's Friction Polish. I don't have Myland's but I do have a bottle of generic fp from Craft Supply and I just don't seem to get enough gloss. What kind of finish do some of you use?
