bottle stoper

Here is my first bottle stoper. Made out of ash. But do have a question what can i use on it to make it safe to use in a bottle of wine or what ever it gets used for.

I'm not sure of the answer to your question, but I couldn't let this thread go by without complimenting your fantastic work. It looks fantastic. Great job.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

I typically finish mine with 2 to 3 coats of friction polish and follow that up with a few coats of wipe on poly for some extra protection. The stopper itself won't come into contact with wine that will be consumed, so your main concern would be protecting the stopper when it's not plugged into a bottle.

I want to die quietly in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like the passengers of his car.

I have several vintage liquor bottles with decorative glass stoppers. Over the years, the cork surrounding the stem of the glass stoppers has crumbled and cracked. I am wondering if anyone knows where I can purchase new replacement corks. These would have to have a hole through the middle that would slip over the stem of the stopper that goes down into the bottle.
