These segmented bottle stoppers make me feel to start turning bottle stoppers for the time.
Well done, Lew.

i wonder how you could make a stopper for a beer can…but that would be against its nature…i dont think folks take a few drinks and then put it back on the shelf like you do with a bottle of wine…lol…...a beer stopper could be the next best thing to going to a AAA meeting…...i might be onto to something here, what do you think lew…what say you larry…??, but back to the wine stoppers…there pretty darned nice…

hey Degoose … this style of stopper design would work with some of your zig-zag work and match your cutting boards.

Dan, Larry, Sam and Grizz- Thanks for the kind words! They are really appreciated.

Grizz- I thought it was against the law not to finish an opened beer.

Nice ones Lew. Thanks for the link as well.

Larry´s religion forbids him to leave wine in the bottle once it is opened. So I think he´ll never make anyone.

Geoff, Fernando, CJ, Chuck and Matt- Thanks for the very kind words, I really appreciate them.

Fernando- I wasn’t sure about wine but I knew that if you open a Fosters, you must drink it all in one sitting.

These are beautiful! I was just thinking about your tapered rolling pins that you created earlier with this similar technique. Someday I will need to commission you for a piece.
