I haven't turned much lately, but I did get a chance to turn a couple stoppers. These were done at the request of my B-I-L when he visited last and drank my wine. He liked my bottle stopper and said he wished he had a couple, hint, hint. He is an avid gun nut and a hunter so I made one embellished with a piece of elk antler and one with the end of a 12 gauge shoot gun shell. They are both made from the same piece of black walnut. I finished them with wipe on poly. I didn't wipe the poly on though I put it on with the lathe turning. There are about 6 thin coats on each.
