I decided to go ahead and give these a shot. They were fun, but not something I’d want to do frequently as it is fairly simple unless you get crazy with carving.
Two stoppers are pictured and use the same Rockler Chrome Hardware. The Rosewood Stopper (Pic 3) had issues. The Chrome finish flaked for some unknown reason. It was in contact with a vinegar and oil based salad dressing and that really shouldn’t be corrosive by any means. The plastic stopper has had no issues. It had contact with olive oil, but is now just used at my parent’s house as a decorative top.
I haven’t had issues with Rockler before, so I’m betting it was a fluke of some sort. Still looks good as long is it’s in a bottle that doesn’t show the tip.
