Wine stoppers in the shapes of states have their state quarter inserted in the center.
Some of the other western style stoppers were filled with tinted epoxy.
All the stoppers were cut from ¾” Oak.
The stopper bases were made from a Mesquite branch.

Napaman, I think you’re looking at the bases as part of the stopper. The stopper is only the white part you see in the middle.

Those look great.

Those are cool. Where do you get the parts for the bottle stoppers?

Thanks for all your comments

Steve – get the stopper inserts from –
I use the “cheap” ones (package of 10 for $8.55) on these wine stoppers.

Napaman – was going to make the comment that every thing is bigger in Texas, but it’s an old line so I won’t
The stoppers are about 3” high.

Mustang – I have made a few with the “Gig em” thumbs up logo, just not any in this group.
