Details

A bottle stopper turned out of box elder burl and matched with a chrome base. It will add an elegant touch to your open bottle of vino while keeping the flavor at its best.

A bit about of the process of creating these bottle stoppers: I start with a hand-selected block of wood and the bits that make up the metal base of the bottle stopper. I then spend some time working the wood to be the proper diameter to match bottle stopper diameter. I often start out with a design that I'm trying to achieve. Sometimes my desires match with the finished form, but often the wood convinces me to change along the way, either by showing me an interesting feature, or by showing me a nasty fault. Sand paper is applied, through a number of grits, to get a nice, smooth surface. Several coats of finished and buffed. The wood and the metal base are then combined to create the finished product.
