Wanted to turn some larger projects other then pens and I thought bottle stoppers would be a good start.I used a Ruth Niles bottle stopper mandrel and these are her stoppers as well.I did try using a 3/8 cut-off bolt in my Jacobs Chuck to hold my blank but did not like it.First pic starting from L-R is Zebra Wood,African Mahogany,Limba,more Limba and Padauk…Fun projects…
