They are a fun project and make great “hostess” gifts or Xmas stocking stuffers.

I have made many with designs from Xmas trees to mushrooms. The latest design is one that fits down around the bottle top which reduces the overall height. That came after my wife complained that the tall stoppers would not fit in the referigerator. You can see an example in my project postings. Also I like to use the silicon stopper sleeves. They don’t stain and seal better than cork. Easiest way to use them is to drill a 1/2” hole in your blanks about 1/2” deep. Glue in a 2” piece of 1/2” maple or birch dowel. Use the dowel end to hold the blank in a chuck and turn your shape. Then cut the dowel to length and slip on the siicon sleeve. For the slip over the bottle neck type I mentioned above, I first drill the larger hole to fit over the bottle top and then the 1/2” hole for the dowel inside that.
