Here are 2 bottle stopper displays that I made along with some stoppers. I saw this on another site so I figured I’d give it a try myself. Works really good for displaying the stoppers at craft fairs. I turned a wine bottle out of Camphor and finished it with 360 grit, orange oil with beeswax and Myland’s friction polish. Cut the bottle in half and ran it across the joiner to get the bottom flat and finished the bottom and drilled the holes for the stoppers. I’m killing 2 birds with 1 stone, showing off the display and the new stoppers I have done.

Unique stoppers and display. They look like two ships (stoppers) passing in the night . . .

Thanks guys..stoppers in left display are: Walnut, and I’m not sure what the top hat one is made out of. Stoppers in right display are(front) Ambrosia Maple, some scraps of Walnut, Oak, and Hickory, (back) Camphor with burnt edges.
