Project Description
This segemented stopper is my second completed project in my June 2009 “30 Projects in 30 Days” challenge. Building these stoppers has been a lot of fun for me. Each design element allows for a number of alternatives by using different species of wood. For this stopper I have my Patchwork pattern which involves four species of wood worked together in a random selection resulting in what looks like a patchwork quilt appearnce. Considering that each stopper takes several hours to build and turn, I take great joy in knowing that no two stoppers are the same.

Stopper Stats:
  • Total pieces: 121
  • Wood: Jatoba, Cherry, Red Leaf Maple & Walnut
  • Cap: Sapele
  • Dimensions: 2-1/8” tall, 1” diameter
  • Finish: CA/BLO

Beautiful Stopper, Darryl!

I really like the randomness of the pattern. It reminds me of one of my mom’s patchwork quilts!
