Some recent stoppers

I haven't posted anything for a while as I've been busy with the Streetfair/Farmer's Market circuit this summer. Here are some of the stoppers I turned this past weekend. The first 2 photos show some burls/natural edge pieces. 2 on the left are maple, 2 on the right are Port Orford cedar burl. The next 2 photos show some Washington State University logo stoppers. Left to right: maple, walnut, 2 bloodwoods. Enjoy.

I must say these are amazing, I love the middle pieces in the first 2 pictures, the outside are a little to bulky for my taste but still nice:), I love all in the last picture.

I actually feel the same way about the outer two burls...just couldn't keep the inclusions otherwise.

They're fun and easy. One of the few places where I feel more like an artist than a craftsman.

Don, I get them from Penn State Industries. I buy them by the 100 as they are my biggest selling item. I have been considering switching to stainless steel, but just haven't pulled the trigger on that yet.

Your turnings always amazed me and these latest stoppers are no exception. Fantastic work. One day, I'm gonna give you some competition, but for now, I'm just learning and enjoying the ride.
Thanks for sharing these. Awesome stuff.

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

Sawdusts, where do you get your bloodwood? It looks so much different than the bloodwood I've been getting, think I like your more.

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

Have you tried using any cork instead of chrome? A friend of mine sells alot of cork ones since they are cheaper and he can sell them cheaper. I bought some cork and some dowels last week but haven't had time to work with them yet. I've got a nice sized pen order going right now. I thought of buying some SS supplies but haven't had time to look for the best place to get them. Any ideas? I've heard of Ruth Niles so I will look into that more next week.

I don't like the look of the cork ones personally. Ruth Niles SS have a great reputation, but are a little pricey which is why I haven't bought any yet. PSI now carries some stainless, but I'm not fond of the style. Will stick with the chrome for now and remind people to not leave them in a bottle for ever
