Made this stopper with the walnut and maple segments reversed from the last one.

Used Rikkor’s washer suggestion to turn the end diameter closer to the stopper diameter. Not perfect but better than the previous one.

Thanks for the kind words.

It is about 1 1/2” diameter and about 3” long. I think I still need to undercut the bottom a little more to allow the metal stopper to “marry” into the wood a little better.

Beautiful! Simple and very elegant. I like this style of inlay. Can you blog the technique?
