I made a these bottle stoppers for a craft sale held at my church. Left to right the woods are: olive, Kingwood, Bubinga, and Rosewood with Maple. I used a wipe on poly for all but the last one which has an epoxy finish. I hope to get $10 per stopper. I hope to turn a couple of pens and maybe a couple ornaments before the sale.
Thanks for looking,

Charge More! I saw some bottle stoppers at a shop in northern GA for $28, but they were not as well done or done with such attractive wood as yours are.

Charge $15 and make more. Keep raising the price until someone cries!!

Impressive collection. They should sell out quickly.

Those are awesome! I am wondering where you purchased that style of bottle stopper kit? I don’t think I have seen those before.

Thank you; there is no better complement then to have your designs an inspiration to others.

I bought them from Penn State Industries; it’s their “Vintage Wine Bottle Stopper” line.

Thanks everyone,

Those are beautiful. I couldn’t be less interested in making pens, but seeing your stoppers makes me really want to make a stopper or two or three. We’re big wine drinkers.

Thing is … I have no lathe. Hmmmm ….

Thanks for sharing.

Have your say...
