Raise a Glass to Table Décor

Show your cordial side by sending beautiful turned bottle stoppers home with your guests. They’re the perfect, personal token of an intimate dinner party or an evening spent with friends. 

Weekend projects come in a variety of flavors: Some are easy to make, and some can be made quite inexpensively. Others can be completed quickly, using only a few supplies or materials. Still others can be quite beautiful, even when you have only a minimal amount of time to spend in the shop. And then there are those that are just perfect for gift-giving.

From time to time, however, there comes along a project that is all of these things. Fast, easy projects that are true crowd-pleasers, bottle stoppers turned on your lathe require a minimum of materials (much of which can come from your scrap barrel), but allow maximum use of your creativity. You can make several stoppers in a style or profile you prefer, or make each stopper one-of-a-kind. If you’re taking advantage of some of the scrap and offcuts that have been piling up in your shop, you can even match the stopper profiles to the materials you have on hand. The possibilities are endless.
