Goblet Bottle Stoppers
We've been seeing a lot of cask and bottle style bottle stoppers, I decided to try and make some goblets for bottle stoppers. The one on the left is east indian rosewood, the one on the right is cocobolo. They are about 2.25 inches tall and just over 1" in diameter. Sanded to 600, 0000 steel wool and then friction polish. I've still got to install the stainless bottle stopper on them which will happen when my next order comes in. Kind of a pain to make, cutting into the end grain required super sharp tools and a lot of patience, and even then I had some problems with the rosewood one or it would be about a quarter inch taller. Sorry about the picture quality, I'm working on getting a better light setup.
I want to die quietly in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like the passengers of his car.
