Last weekend, my wife announced that she needed a gift for a friend. She was in a hurry too! After 40 minutes at the lathe, I brought this wine stopper upstairs. Apparently it was a big hit with her friend.
Wood is British Columbia Dogwood, which, incidentally, is our Provincial flower as well. It turned very vicely and was a pleasure to work with.
It’s good to have a few of these glued up and ready to turn for situations just like this one. Very quick little gifts that have that personal touch.
