Happy Valentines everyone!

Since New Year’s I have not spent much time in the shop which has given me some time to think about my work and how precious and valuable our time is.

Over the years I have made a lot of wine bottle stoppers on my wood lathe. The problem has always been once on the wind bottle, they were to tall to get into the fridge without lowering the fridge shelf. I’ve solved this problem by designed a recessed wine bottle stopper. I’ve made the cork disappear inside the wood turning. They have turned out beautiful! Check them out…

I want to share a few pictures of the wine bottle stoppers I have turned. Each one is unique but the design is similar.

The above two I made using Maple Burl and blue dyed Busheye Burl. I wanted to see how the blue dyed Buckeye Burl would look when finished.

Maple Burl

maple-burl-blocks

I was searching around today on Craig’s List and found a super deal on a couple of Maple Burl blocks. I got both pieces for $10, on Ebay and other wood stores these pieces would go for $45 plus. Maple burl is hard to get and nearly impossible in my area. I used a little mineral spirits on one side of each piece to show the colors!

Both pieces are 1-5/8 x 2-1/2, one is 17 inches long and the other is 11-1/2 inches long. I am planning to use these to turn a batch of my wine bottle stoppers!! Give me a few weeks and I will post pictures! Happy Days 🙂

Wine Bottle Stoppers!

Bottle-Stopper

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.
