Project Description
This segemented stopper is my third 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 used my Speckled pattern.

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
  • Primary Wood: Red Leaf Maple
  • Secondary Wood: Walnut
  • Cap: Sapele
  • Dimensions: 2-1/8” tall, 1” diameter
  • Finish: CA/BLO

Man, those are cool. Do you cut these pieces, or is there somewhere to buy them? When I put your dimensions against my ruler the size of each piece becomes downright tiny. Very nice.
