I hand select each piece of wood I turn and store it in a controlled environment until it reaches the optimal moisture content for turning. Depending on the species and size this process can take up to a year. I create the shape but Mother Nature creates the stunning color and grain of the wood so no two pieces are alike.
This bottlestopper will make an elegant gift or a unique addition to your barware collection and it is sure to be a conversation piece at your next gathering. It is hand signed.
This bottle stopper measures 6” in length and is about 2” at the widest point. There are no stains applied, this is the natural color of the wood. I use an oil finish and polish it to a fine satin sheen. The metal portion is stainless steel, which resists corroding and will retain its clean shine for many years to come. The metal portion can be rinsed under running water and the wood can be wiped clean with a soft cloth.
