The first two photos are of some Wine Bottle Stoppers I turned. The first two are from Osage Orange, #3 is Mahogany, #4 Quina, #5 Beeswing Narra, #6 Kingwood, and #7 Birds Eye Maple.

The third picture is something my wife came up with; they are meant to resemble c9 bulbs. I turned them from Maple then died them with Red Aniline dye. In the picture they have not been top coated or buffed. I made about 2 dozen of them…. The last picture is just me experimenting with the dye…..
