Project Description
I was inspired a few weeks back to try something new with my segmented bottle stoppers by this project from Woodhacker. I made a jig for my drillpress to hold my individual segments so I could drill a little hole and insert a small dowel (also known as a toothpick!).

Stopper Stats:
  • Total pieces: 137
  • Primary wood: Red Leaf Maple
  • Secondary wood: Walnut
  • Cap: Sapele
  • Dimensions: 2-1/8” tall, 1” diameter
  • Finish: CA/BLO

That is a really beautiful bottle stopper.

What is the dark area between each segment? Is it dark glue or a piece of veneer? Whatever it is I really like it.

the darkness between the segments is from the CA glue used. I haven’t got into applying veneer… yet!

This stopper was pretty much a trial for a couple techniques. I’m pretty happy with the results. Thanks for the kind words!

What adjective could I possibly use that could come close to the WoW that stopper inspires.
