    3-D Bottle Stopper

    My first attempt at turninng one of Ed "YoYoSpin" Davidson acrylic stoppers. Came out pretty good. Started out chipping pretty bad but got that under control and it was smooth turning afterward. Got the base a little smaller than I wanted, but it works. Naturally the wife, who likes yellow roses, laid claim to it as soon as I showed her.

    Wet sanded to 1200 and then polished it with some acrylic polish. It shined up real nice I think. It will be on my list to do some more.

    If it weren't against my religion to say nice things about synthetics... ....., I would compliment that very nice turning.

    Awesome. I like the clear part on top and then the solid on bottom. Makes it very interesting. Where did you get the blank?

    Thanks for the comments, they are appreciated. I got he blank from Mr. Baumbeck at AS. They coat 5.95 and come in several different colors. He also has a video on how to turn and finish them on his web site.
