Copied this little bottle stopper from one that Ruth Niles showed me.

Made from hard maple, painted with latex paint and clear coated. The stopper is a Niles stainless steel stopper #A-301

Quick gift for visiting relatives.

Well, isn’t Lew just too clever by half?
I was just about to say something snide about how long it’s been since you posted something. Then, in case I might be speaking out of turn, I went to your Gallery, and found the Salt Shaker. Snide remark withheld, for future application.
