This beautiful wine bottle stopper was turned in the shape of a top hat.
The Box Elder burl used is highly figured and is going in all directions on this stopper. This burl was dyed blue and stabilized here in my shop. The places that you can see clear wood showing through the burl was to dense for the dye to penetrate and adds even more character to this stopper.
I hand-turned this stopper on a wood lathe and then sanded and finished with an all natural walnut oil and then buffed with three layers of wax to give it a nice luster.
The bottle stopper itself is made here in the USA, from food grade stainless steel and will not rust or flake. The four different sizes of o-rings will create a seal in most any bottle. The stopper also features a footed bottom so that when it's not in a bottle it can stand on it's own. Another way to show off the beauty of the top.
The stopper is approximately 1 1/4 inches in diameter by just under 3 inches tall and it comes in a nice velvet pouch.
The stopper shown is the actual stopper that you will receive.
This Box Elder Burl bottle stopper can be used in a wine bottle and also in bottles of Olive oil, liquor, balsamic vinegar, decorative herbs, bath oils and much more . This would make a great housewarming gift. This stopper is the perfect gift for your wine loving friend.
