Two of the bottle stoppers are ‘disappearing’ stoppers – showing off the wood instead of the metal stopper, one is out of Walnut and one out of Hububalli. One of the stoppers has a deco top and made out of Walnut. I have had very good luck selling both styles and really fun to make.

Good idea. First time I’ve seen it done with the metal plugs. I have made similar ones with the silicon slip covers. My wife requested them because they set lower and fit in the fridge better than the ones that stick up.

You are exactly right, real space savers. Guess this is why they sell so good! working on a new display holder for the disappearing stoppers, will post it when it’s finished.

This is my next project as a gift for my daughter-in-law. It will be my first try. Yours look great.

They’re really neat. How did you make the disappearing ones? I use a bottle stopper chuck and I’m having trouble imagining how to do it. Thanks for posting.

What I do is – first I turn a tenon and then place into a 4 jaw chuck, turn the piece close to final size, then use a forstner bit (size of bottle neck) drill about 1 to 1.5 inches, then drill hole for your bottle stopper chuck. Next screw the bottle stopper chuck into the piece, turn the piece around and finish turning the top. Hope that helps, if not PM me and I will send you some pictures or help in anyway I can. They are fun to make and sell very well, especially at wine shows and wineries… Good luck
