At the Lathe: Bottle Stoppers

A simple lesson in spindle turning.
By Judy Ditmer
Pages: 42-44

These bottle stoppers are great projects for beginners and more advanced turners alike. Their relative ease of turning makes them a manageable project for beginners; for more advanced turners that simplicity offers the opportunity to focus on design. And they make nice gifts for almost any occasion.

Almost any hardwood is suitable, but I find for small items like these, woods with rich and contrasting grain work best.
