    Christmas Bottlestoppers

    A co-worker asked me to turn some bottle stoppers for Christmas, so this is what I turned while waiting for the lacquer to cure on some peppermills.

    From left to right: Curly Western Maple, Spalted Sweet Gum, Purpleheart/Maple/Veneer, Sweet Gum, Cocobolo, Spalted Sweet Gum, and Koa.

    They are all finished with Deft rattle can lacquer, Beall buffed and finished with Ren wax.

    Great work there... are those Ruth Niles's SS stoppers or the ones from CSUSA?

    I like the brushed finish on the metal parts...

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Neat. I like them all but the maple on the left the most.
