Project Description
This segemented stopper is my thirteenth 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. This stopper is made with my patchwork pattern and includes a stainless steel droplet stopper.

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 Woods: Cherry, Walnut and Jatoba
  • Cap: Sapele
  • Dimensions: 2-1/8” tall, 1” diameter
  • Finish: CA/BLO

Russel, I would have never in my life classified myself as a person with patience. But for some reason, I find working on these segmentation projects very relaxing.

and Gary, I’m having a blast!

Beautiful work Darryl. It might be an idea to show at least one whole stopper in your store pictures to give your customers a better idea of scale. Here I am giving unasked for advice again. Sorry, I can’t help myself.
