This wine bottle stopper has been sold. Visit my Etsy store to see the available wine bottle stoppers

This is my third completed wine bottle stopper.

Stopper Stats:
  • Total pieces: 121
  • Primary wood: Jatoba (Brazilian Cherry)
  • Secondary wood: Red Leaf Maple
  • Cap: Sapele
  • Dimensions: 2-1/8” tall, 1” diameter
  • Finish: CA/BLO

The biggest challenge on this stopper was definately the finish. Trying to get the CA applied evenly was eventful!

Beautiful!
The turning part must have been a cinch, after gluing all of those pieces together.
