Handmade Goncalo Alves Wood Bottle Opener - Chrome Tiger Iron Gemstone

Details

Handturned Solid Wood Bottle Opener by Lonnie Boyle

To make this stopper, a solid piece of goncalo alves wood is handturned on a lathe to create a graceful shape with subtle carved accents. The end tapers to frame an inset 25mm cabochon of tiger iron, a gemstone similar to tiger eye. The shape is nicely balanced for a solid grip and the stone highlights the color of the goncalo alves, which is also known as tigerwood. This piece of wood has a straight grain and uniform color (natural, no stain is used).

The opener is high-quality chrome plating, threaded into the wood and also glued securely in place. This opener has good weight without being bulky, measuring 7" in total length and about 1-3/8" at the widest point. The wood has been sealed with two coats of food-safe finish that adds protection without extra shine (the surface is not shiny as a gloss lacquer would be). Because this is made from a single piece of wood and the hardware is sturdy, this opener will have a good long life.

This beautiful handmade opener makes a great gift or accessory for a home bar and comes packaged in a protective pouch. First Class postage cost includes tracking, which I will notify you of upon shipping.

Other combinations of wood, gemstone, contouring and sizes are available. Please use the "contact this seller" button to ask about custom designs!

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

My brother Lonnie worked alongside my Dad in his shop to learn the tricks to using a wood lathe to achieve contours and dimensions in wood. He is creating these wood openers to be functional pieces of art and we've worked together to select jewelry-grade smooth gemstone cabochons to accent each piece. I'm pleased to offer these unique openers together with my handcrafted jewelry.

Goncalo alves wood, chrome-plated opener, tiger iron cabochon (25mm), food-safe sealer

The accepted method of payment is PayPal (Amazon Payments was discontinued by ArtFire in 2015). You do not have to set up a PayPal account to be able to make secure payment through their site, and I will not see your credit card number. Please make payment within 24 hours of making purchase, as otherwise I assume you are foregoing the purchase and will re-post the item(s).

No personal checks are accepted; money orders will be allowed by previous email arrangement. Please make contact with me ahead of time if you request to pay by money order.

NOTE: Residents of Georgia will see sales tax added upon checkout, as I am required by law to collect and remit tax to the state.

SHIPPING

Orders will be shipped in 2-5 business days of payment to your PayPal address unless the listing notes extra time for fabrication (make to order). Send an email immediately after making payment if an alternate address should be used, or add to Notes to Seller. Items shipped within the United States will be wrapped and shipped by USPS First Class with tracking, which number I will provide to you on shipping. Canada packages will be sent First Class Mail International with appropriate customs form. For purchases specially arranged by money order, your item will ship after full payment has been received. If you are outside the U.S. and Canada, please contact me to discuss shipping options and pricing.

RETURN AND EXCHANGE POLICY

I want you to be happy with your handmade jewelry and will work with you on any concerns you may have after purchase. Because great care is taken to describe and picture an item accurately, please choose carefully. Unworn items may be exchanged or returned for partial refund. You will be responsible for the cost of shipping a return item with delivery tracking--which cost will be refunded if an item is defective. The refund amount will be reduced by original shipping costs and a 15% handling fee. Returns or exchanges must be initiated within 7 days of receiving your item, and I must receive by mail with tracking within 14 days--in original unworn condition and secure packaging.

***BOOKS ARE NON-RETURNABLE***
