I put together a new bottle stopper blank this week and I've also got a blank put together to make a candle holder. I'm pretty happy with the progress of both so far. I need to get some new stock prepped up to finish up the candle holder, it's only about 2/3 complete right now.
here's the bottle stopper - the design is currently un-named... I have used maple and bloodwood in this piece.
the candle holder is a twisting pattern that uses oak and mahogany.
the candle holder blank is about 2.5" in diameter and will be about 3-5/8" tall when completed.
