Project Description
This segemented stopper is my fourth completed project in my June 2009 “30 Projects in 30 Days” challenge. Building these stoppers has been a lot of fun for me. Each design element allows for a number of alternatives by using different species of wood. For this design I used an open segmentation technique as the highlight. The upper portion of this stopper is hollow.

Considering that each stopper takes several hours to build and turn, I take great joy in knowing that no two stoppers are the same.

Stopper Stats:
  • Total pieces: 121
  • Primary Wood: Walnut
  • Secondary Wood: Red Leaf Maple
  • Cap: Sapele
  • Dimensions: 2-1/8” tall, 1” diameter
  • Finish: CA/BLO

Open segmentation … Makes for an insteresting piece. Looks good, you’ve got to have quite a steady hand to do that.

Really Cool, Darryl!

Is there a dowel inside of the top or is it “empty”?

The top is empty.
I didn’t attach the top layer of Walnut and the Sapele cap until I had formed the inside.
