This is my version of a wooden wine bottle stopper. After preparing the wood blanks I turn these on the lathe making a recess at one end. The recess is where I mount the cork. The bottle stopper to the left was turned from Maple Burl, Blackwood and Redheart wood. The Bottle stopper to the right I turned from Blackwood, Maple and Purple Heart wood.

The next two pictures give you an idea of how I turned the recess for the cork!
