This is a white maple wine bottle stopper rack that was ordered and then the customer changed his mind on the wood species and switched to oak. I had this one almost done when he made the change so I will use this one at my next show. It holds 35 stoppers. Each hole is 15/16” diameter with a 1 1/16” x 1/16 ” deep counterbore at the top. It has a lazy susan swivel under it so it can turn.
This one is finished with Zar 114 stain and gloss lacquer. This is the 4th rack I have built of this design.

Nicely done display. I first thought it was a pipe display, but I guess there aren’t that many pipe smokers these days.

A larger and taller version would make a great cane display!

I had made a real tall one for a customer for fishing poles. It just had one ring of holes at the top and and pockets in the base for the handles. It was also on a lazy Susan…....

Hi Phil. I use stopper bottoms with a 3/8-16 threaded stud. To turn them, I mount them on a threaded stud that I made.It is sticking out of a 1”-8 nut that screws onto the lathe spindle. One thing I do when turning a stopper that will not have a hole or recess in the top is to use a nylon cap over my live center in the tail stock to support the blank while I rough it out. This saved me from stripping out the threads in the wood lots of times….......Jim

Jim,
Where do you get your hardware? I have had some issues with a few brands, and the pricing has varied a bit too. Any advice would be great! Thanks, Todd

Hi Todd, I think your are referring to the stopper bottoms. I buy them in groups of 20 or more from Woodturnerscatalog.com If you buy more than19 you get a 20% discount and I know I’ll use them.
I have standardized on part #101-480 in gold color.

Cheers,...........Jim
