Looks like you got a good start there.
I like the simple (2nd and 3rd) from the left best. Hope you do well with your shows.

Not criticizing, I've been doing craft shows for 4+ years now and people don't like big long stoppers. I try to keep mine 2/3 or less the length of the hardware otherwise they don't sell, quickly anyway.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

No problem. Your stoppers are looking good, nice shapes and transitions. Just been my experience that folks don't like em too tall. Good luck with the shows. Let me know with a pm if you would like some tips.

Good to hear some pointers like that Dusty.
I recently made one that was tall. We put it in one of the liter wine bottles and it barely fit under the cabinet over the countertop.
Typical clearance between wall cabinets to countertop is 18".

+1 to your comments. I also sell stoppers and people tend to also like the darker ones better. Wood is # 1 and acrylics move very slowly. When you mention it is acrylic they say "oh" and grab a wood one.

First time in here but I can turn and some of my friends are guns. I have carved a few bottle stoppers for friends but I wonder if they are as popular as they would have been a few years ago.

Most of our wine bottles here are screw lids, so people just screw them back on. When they were corks and you removed the cork to open the bottle you usually put something on the top of the bottle.

The Bottle stopper was perfect, better then the old cork for practical reasons. Is there less of a demand now in the States for Bottle Stoppers.
