These Stoppers are made from all the little scraps that accumulate from all the different projects. The stand is a chunk of maple burl, some flat areas shaped into it, and lacquered. Stopper parts are from Penn State Industries. I use the stoppers as a testing ground for new curve ideas, and to see what happens when blanks are glued up a bit differently.

A beautiful collection and what a great way to display them! Some of those look like they could double as shot glasses.
