I have never been happy with any bottle stopper because they add too much height for the bottle to fit in a refrigerator. This stopper is called a space saver and only adds 1/2 inch to the height of the bottle. Next I am going to turn one with a Celtic Knot, This one is made from Mahogony. The idea for this project goes to Doug Green of Austin Texas He does classes for Woodcraft there – Many thanks Doug!

Good job. A Liberty Bell would be cute. Unless of course you are not from the US.

Great Idea. I made and posted that design here almost two years ago in my projects page.

It came about because my wife complained about hot being able to put white wine in the fridge with the tall stoppers on them.
It must be that great minds thing?
