Wine stopper collection

These two wine stoppers are turned from Bollo, a beautiful light amber wood with deep and distinctive black veining. Finished with a high-friction polish, and a layer of carnuba wax.

Another set of Bollo stoppers.
This stopper is turned
from an Australian Pinecone.
It's a difficult product to
work with but the result
is a piece filled with character.
Finished with Mylan's and poly.

A pair of stoppers made of Jobillo.
Inspired by drawer pulls and doorknobs.
Finished with grain sealer and wax.

A stopper turned from Kingwood. I enjoy working with this wood because of it's straight and predictable grain and it's medium density makes it easy on your tools and hands. Finished with Mylan's.
