I had a bunch of hardwood scraps around that were too small to do much with and too nice to throw in the burn bucket.
Result: Bottle stoppers.
I used silicone stoppers from Packard Woordworks. They are flexible, said to be long wearing and can be replaced easily since they hold onto the dowel with a friction fit. This means the stopper can be removed and washed. The dowel is 1/2” diameter with a step down to 23/64” for insertion into a blank. Sold in packages of 10 Stoppers and 10 Dowels. Current price: $8.95 per pack.
