Whiskey Bottle Stoppers

A friend of mine decided he wanted to try his hand at making bottle stoppers but wanted to make them for his whiskey bottles...so of course they had to be whiskey barrels.

That's pretty awesome stuff. What did you do for the "knot" in the side?

Thats no knot. That's a "bung hole"

Anybody can become a woodworker, but only a Craftsmen can hide his mistakes!

I don't know how I missed this thread, but I'm glad that I finally caught up with it. Those are awesome. I really love how they look. Fantastic job. Your friend has some talent for sure.

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

for the bung hole he drilled a small hole and used a 1/8" dowel for the contrast of the bung hole.

That's awesome! Now you have to drive up to Lynchburg and buy an old JD whiskey barrel, cut it up and make whiskey barrel bottle stoppers out of old whiskey barrels.

PS- Let me know when you're going, I'd like to hitch a ride! :D
