Hi all… I have been turning a few bottle stoppers for Christmas gifts lately, and unfortunately I ran out of stoppers, so I am piling up the tops for them LOL.

This one was unique enough I thought I would post it.

It is a piece of Padauk turned in the shape of an apple, and a small twig soaked in CA glue is glued into a hole I bored into the top.

I think this will be an appropriate gift for my Mother-in-law who happens to be a Kindergarten teacher.

great job…even the wood grain texture adds to the look!....I think if I had to teach kindergarten…just give me the wine (lots of it)...forget the apple….lol
