Bocote Wooden Handcrafted Wine Bottle Stopper
Vintage charm and character abound in our handmade bottle stoppers. Each lovingly hand crafted mill is turn on my lathe and will surely impress your guests at the dinner table.
Bocote is an exotic wood native to Mexico, Central America, and the West Indies. It features a wide range of grain patterns from straight to wild, with curved lines and swirls. The color ranges from golden brown to tan to golden yellow. It is a hard, heavy, and dense wood, strong and stiff, with a medium texture. It polishes well with wax or polyurethane, and will take a moderately high natural gloss.It is moderately hard and resistant to wearing and marring. This is considered one of the world’s finest woods for turning.
This Bottle Stopper is to be seen and to be appreciated. Remember there is only one of these designs making it a unique. No two pieces are the same. Each will have different grain patterns and colors.
The Bottle Stopper is finished with multiple coats of a CA finish, which gives it a durable gloss coat that will resist oils and signs of wear.
