Just thought I would toss a sampling of my Wine Stoppers out here. All are finished with Tru-Oil. 3 of these are made of Kingwood. I love Kingwood, it is not only beautiful, but also very easy to work with.

these look great, nice job!
I have to agree with lew, the lamintation and coloring of the first is my favorite.

Fantastic stoppers! Love all the shapres and colors. Kinda have to agree though, that first one is stunning.

Lots of nice shapes and ideas.

Keep it up.

I like the stoppers with the medallions in the ends…...... I don’t like the ones with a point. hard on the hand….. Wood looks great…..... Just my opinion

The medallions in the ends make a really nice finishing touch, especially good with glossy wood. The photography layout is a nice idea, too.

Not only do I like the woodworking, but you’re doing pretty well in the photography, too.
I think you must be using a light tent sort of thing for this latest picture. It looks good, showing the stopper very well.
I notice, too, the glassware is overexposed, so the eye is drawn to the woodworking. Maybe that wasn’t intentional, but its working for you.

I think all of us who wish to show our work in photos owe it to ourselves to learn as much as we can about the science and art of photography.

Keep up the good work.
