I've always considered myself shape challenged on bottle stoppers. However, today I was able to come up with some different shapes that I liked. I didn't draw any thing on paper I just had a shape in mind and turned them.

I think these stopper look great. I like the shape and wood contrast. Sometimes I look at different ads for stoppers before I begin to turn just to get in the mood.

I look at the work of a talented guy like Tom C. and use some of his designs, he'll never know and if he finds out it's a compliment to him.

I have copied other peoples design/shape because at times I can't figure out a shape that I want. So you are more than welcome to copy mind and I do take it as a compliment.
