I turned 9 bottle stoppers over the weekend and made up the display stands today. The first stand of 5, left to right – Osage Orange, Redheart, Bloodwood, Redheart and Cherry. The second stand of 4, left to right – Cherry, Redheart, Purpleheart and Osage Orange. Thanks for looking.

Very nice work Mike. Those look nice.

Very nicely done—great little assortment, with interesting variations in wood and design. Your display stand really set your work off well.

very nice stoppers, but I have to say I really like the stands more then the stoppers, they are simplistic in design but the wood choice give them a very elegant look. Nicely done.

These are beauties, Mike!

Love the stands, too, beautiful but does not detract from the stoppers.
