    new bottle stoppers

    had a little too much time on my hands today, and the weather was almost nice (supposed to drop down to single digits by wednesday). so i got a little busy and turned some bottle stoppers. the top one is redheart, the next 2 down are ebony, the next 2 down are mahogany, and the last 2 down are walnut. the middle left is kingwood, and the middle right is cocobolo.

    I like 'em all, Dan. The ebony ones really look extra sharp.

    All fine, nice looking. The ebony are stand outs. But, I'm surprised you would use expensive ebony on a humble stopper. Don't believe I would do that.

    the stoppers are now on the web site, and are up for grabs.
    (and if even one sells, it will give me enough material to razz the bearded one for quite some time)
