Project Description
My sister suggested to me a while back that I make a segmented blank with random pieces. I’m a little too much OCD to be able to grab random segments, so I devised my method of making a random segmented stopper. I decided I didn’t want an even number of each species, so this stopper is comprised of 40% cherry, 30% Jatoba, 20% Red Leaf Maple and 10% Walnut. With those segments mixed together, I then glued up whatever my hand picked up.

My wife likes this the best of all of them. I have to admit that I like it a lot more than I thought it would. Other than the way it looks, I also like that I can make another with the same selection of segments and it will be completely different. To me that is cool…

Stopper Stats:
  • Total pieces: 121
  • Primary wood: Cherry
  • Secondary wood: Jatoba (Brazilian Cherry)
  • Tertiary wood: Red Leaf Maple
  • Quaternary wood: Walnut
  • Cap: Sapele
  • Dimensions: 2-1/8” tall, 1” diameter
  • Finish: CA/BLO

That looks like it could cause someone to have fits glueing it together, but the finished product looks great.

Another Beauty, darryl!!

I really like the shape of these. It reminds me of a “popped” champaign cork.
