Oct. 22/10

Here’s the first of the Xmas presents.
Last year everyone received a pen for their birthday present. This year they all get a bottle stopper for their Xmas present. They will have their initials “woodburned” into the top, which as you can see I have kept flat for that purpose.

This looks good, Deb. I am glad to see that you are getting an early start on Christmas and not waiting until the last minute. This looks like you had fun doing this stopper. Whenever I see posts like this I regret not having a lathe in my shop.

Debbie, this is a nice Christmas present and you did a good job on it and I’m sure they will love it.

thanks :)

I have the mini lathe from Steel City... doesn’t take up much space, Scott.. and I got a SUPER DUPER deal on mine so it didn’t cost me an arm and a leg, either!

Very nice Debbie!

It won’t be long, & you’ll have your list done.

Question: What kind of stain did you use to get that Red tint?

I’m sorry to rub it in. <(:O}&

What a beautiful gift, Debbie! You are sure motivating me to get moving (faster) on doing my own gifts! The color of the wood is beautiful. I have a wood burner that is still in the package and I want to try. Have you done a lot of wood burning? It seems like fun. :)

They are really going to love it!

Well done Debbie. A useful Christmas gift is always welcome, and this is a beautiful one. I would also like to compliment you on your photo, which to me looks very professional and artistic.
