in the spirit of some newbies posting pictures of their turnings, I thought I'd post a few of my bottle stoppers.
I had started making pens, but found that mundain tasks of matching micro-millimeters just got too boring for me. I started adding designs, but that made the pen a little harder to use, so I used my creative talent and started doing bottle stoppers. To date, I've probably made 35 or so, a few blowups, especially when I get down to some of these smaller sizes. As well, the goblets were 3 deep before I figured out the process on that.
All woods are exotics, Cocobolo mostly for the black ones, Monte Ebony, Black and White Ebony, Apple, and Figured Maple.
all comments, good and constructive are welcome.
