This is the completed Mother’s Day project. My first attempt at wine stoppers. Hopefully mom will like.

Very nice, I like the stand also. What types of woods are they?

WOW,
All three are nice but the white one is my fav. What is it made of?

Very nice. Is that white one turned from Holly? It looks almost like bone!

Thanks!
Actually, there are only 3 woods. The middle stopper is Cocobolo, the other is walnut, and the white one is hard maple.
The stand is maple and walnut. The finish on the stand is mineral oil, and the stoppers are HUT Crystal Coat.

Nicely done and presented. Your Mom will LOVE them! And when she’s using the stoppers, she can use the display table for additional turnings you’ll be creating :)
