Are the stoppers the stainless steel, or the chrome? I did a tulipwood stopper, and my bride loved it.

Very nice! Do you sell these? Also, it would be great if you could write a blog entry on how you create a single stopper.

Nice…. I ordered a bunch of these before christmas… still waiting for the backordered pieces!

Splinters – I found stainless steel ones (the chrome is pretty, but can corrode if left in the bottles too long) at Craft Supplies USA

Thank you for the nice comments.

rikkor – Yes, the stoppers are chrome with 2 o-rings.

Splinters – here is another site that I have purchased them through http://www.arizonasilhouette.com/

Roger – Yes, I do sell them. I actually have sold over 150 in the last year. They are all unique, I never really know what they will look out till the wood tells me through turning. I have considered doing a blog or videocast but don’t have the AV equipment to do it yet. Here is a site that has a nice tutorial about making one: http://yoyospin.com/stopper/

Very nice Lboy. A great looking set.

Where do you sell them at anyway?

I currently have the wine stoppers in a little wine bar near my home, but I have had better success selling them word of mouth to friends. I scored on some free wood from a patron of the wine bar. He installs wood flooring and routinely has scrap from jobs. He saw my stoppers and contacted me and has given me a ton of Brazilian Cherry, and Maple. He also purchased an assortment of stoppers and pens to give to customers and employee’s as gifts.

Very cool Lboy. It sounds like a nice arrangement, you get the wood and he gets the end products.
