    Bottle Stoppers

    I have an upcoming show and have been told that these things sell well so I thought I should make some. These are my first. Spent Friday evening and yesterday making 25. They are relative easy to do. The most difficult thing for me was coming up with all the designs. Even slipped in a couple of Hollow Forms. There are Maple Burl, Mesquite, Dyed Ash, Walnut, Cherry, Magahogny, Zebrawood and Purpleheart.

    Very nice Keith!

    I like the hollow forms and the burls the best.

    You're a dang machine, Keith. It'd sure take me longer than a day and an evening to turn 25. They look great, and I like the NE and HF versions, too.
