NH State quarter epoxied into the top of this stainless steel wine bottle stopper. The wood was harvested locally in New Hampshire! Wood is finished in boiled linseed oil.

As with the other stoppers I’ve posted,

Click for details!

it has a silicone seal and is machined from a solid piece of stainless steel, not chrome plated that will flake off. This design is available from Craft Supplies USA (about half the time I check they’re sold out) but i’ve noticed a couple more suppliers are starting to offer the Stainless steel, it’s the only one I’d use, as we’ve lost three chrome ones not long after we got them. (Who wants flakes of chrome in their Pinot?

Very nice I too like the “quarter deal”. I’m starting to inset pennies from the year the project was made in inconspicuous place on the project.
