My wife wanted me to get a couple of bottle stoppers that you use to re-cork a wine bottle from the store.
Since we had the hardware for bottle stoppers here at work I made a couple instead.

They are both Maple burl. One with the natural burl surface on top, the other with fossil ivory. Next time I will use a little more dramatic wood, but I thought these looked ok.

Looks good. This project may turn out like the chopsticks, you will need to make about fifty more.

My boss already asked me to make a couple dozen for the gallery.
We used to have an old retired guy who came here for wood. After a while we started trading wood for bottle stoppers.
They would sell quickly but I thought they looked like Christmas ornaments. He's not around anymore so the boss got a bunch of the hardware thinking someone around here would make them. Looks like I got elected.
