6” long, 3 1/4 inches of beautiful Bubinga.
Also known as African Rosewood, bubinga is a reddish brown (sometimes pinkish red with darker purple streaks) tone wood (used in guitars etc…).This evergreen flowering tree in the legume family is found in South America and Africa.
This stopper is sanded super smooth, buffed even smoother, and finished with walnut oil to really bring out the woodgrain. I found this similar to mahogany in texture and workability, but with a much more visable grain pattern, and in my mind a nicer color.
As with all the other stoppers I make, this one is machined from a solid piece of stainless steel, not chrome plated that will flake off. Ever.
- and now for the not so subliminal message portion of this post – You now have the insatiable urge to gift yourself a nice bottle of (My Uncles!) Pinot Noir or Viognier. (I’m having the Pinot this Thanksgiving. Mmmm.) http://www.kindredwines.com/main.htm
