I’ve been having some fun turning these bottle stoppers.
Not in any particular order there are:
Osage orange, tulip wood, walnut burl, leopard wood, canary wood, fao paulo. zebra wood and spalted maple.
The spalted maple was made by a friend who dropped a few logs in his backyard stream for 3 1/2 years
The stands are made of red oak 3/4’ base. 1/2” back and 1/4” top. Each piece is beveled at 5 degrees so the top is sort of cantilevered over the bottom
The stoppers on the top shelf have stainless steel bases which won’t react with the wine. The bottom are either cork or silicone, which also will not react with the wine.
-- No piece is cut too short. It was meant for a smaller project.
