These are some of my latest wine bottle stoppers made here in the Arizona desert on my Harbor Freight mini lathe. They are made with Mesquite, spalted beechwood, walnut, juniper and osage orange. I have inserted some with tiger eye and other stones from the Tucson gem and mineral show and 12 gauge and 7.62mm shells. .

Great looking stoppers and I like the idea of the shell inserts. The display is awesome.

Fantastic! Great group of stoppers. Nice shapes. The ones with the stone inserts stand out the best.

Keep it up.

Hi Jacen68. I don’t have any close up shots of the ones with shell casings. I sold them since this was taken , too. But it is just a matter of boring a hole to fit the shell casing ( cut to 1/2” long) and holding it in with epoxy.
