Another simple scrap wood project – some hand turned oak wine barrel wine stoppers. I turned a batch of them one day, then realized perhaps we needed a display to sell them out of and made a quick walnut display with four wine barrel feet.

Trying to sell at $24.94 each – no luck yet w/ sales unfortunately. They’re simple enough to make about 15 minutes at best into each one start to finish. Cut a block of wood, tap it for the mandrel, mount it and turn it quickly … finish it right on the spot pressing hard with shellac then tung oil then wax.

We’ll see if any sell ??

Thanks for the feedback!
