These wood turned bottle stoppers are to be used on a wine bottle over dinner. Most are turned out of a purchased wood and is crafted to fit perfectly in the mouth of a bottle of wine, as well as in the hand of the drinker. The cork is glued to a dowel that is turned out of the wood of the stopper. The stoppers can be finished with a wax finish, a friction polish finish, or an oil based finish. The finished stopper is arranged so that the wine will not be cross contaminated with the finish. This is something made from a small piece of wood, and I would love to use a piece of wood that is special to you and create a sentimental piece of useful art for you.
