Just wanted to show a piece I made recently, a gift for the wife. A wine stopper made from Grecian briar. This piece was a little undersized for pipe making, but has found a purpose after all. Shellac finish, and a wax topcoat. The base unscrews and can be washed independent of the wood topper. Enjoy the pic and have great day! Gonzo

Super cool. Really beautiful. Not a drinker myself but I got plenty of bottles of fancy olive oil that would look grand underneath that thing.

Thanks very much! I am not a drinker either, my wife has a glass of wine now and then. I hadn't thought of stoppers for olive oil, but now that you mention it!

Looks good. Nice way to re-purpose a chunk of briar.

Cool


Cheers,

RR

Really nice. My wife would love to have something like that, she's a bit of a wine snob.

Thanks guys, I have made wine stoppers from many types of wood, this is the first briar one though.

Thanks, much appreciated. I dug up a pic of another stopper I made a while back. This one is from Zebrawood, very striking grain contrast.

That one looks nice too, though the trouble and strife really prefers the briar.


lol!

Thank you sir! Always appreciate the feedback on what is preferred too. Briar is beautiful stuff, I will probably make more in the near future.

This one is my latest, Maple from my own yard. Kept some of the bark on the widest section for nice color contrast. Black trim rings, and a slant top. Very Happy
