This is a beautiful hand made bottle stopper and corkscrew combination sure to wow your guests and is made from African Padauk wood. The wine stopper has been shaped like a bowler hat while turning on the lathe. This is No. 2 in my mini hat collection of stoppers. Each piece is produced by hand on the lathe to the highest standard. The beauty in this naturally colourful wood adds a touch of class to any dinner party as well as being a useful everyday item.
This is a beautiful, high quality and functional item. It is a must for anyone, whether a wine connoisseur or not. The heavy-duty corkscrew is stored inside the bottle stopper when not in use. The design features 3 special O-rings making it adaptable to almost any bottle.
About the process
A piece is selected from seasoned wood for its grain and colour.
They are carefully cut to show the best grain .
The wood is turned to size then sanded through 5 different grits of sand paper.
It is then rubbed with danish oil to bring out the beautiful grain then rubbed with a bees wax mix before completing with the premium fittings

If you like the style, but would rather have a different wood, or a different design in the same wood please feel free to ask. You can see from my other listings of pens etc what type of woods i use.
Padauk has a very unique reddish orange coloration, and the wood is sometimes referred to by the name Vermillion. Padauk is moderately heavy, strong, and stiff, with exceptional stability. It’s a popular hardwood among hobbyist woodworkers because of its unique color and low cost.
Padauk is perhaps the most frequently misspelled (and mispronounced) wood species, with Padouk, Paduk, and Paduak being common misspellings. The most common pronunciation is pah-DUKE, it is sometimes mispronounced as Paducah—a city in Kentucky.
The padauk found most often is African Padauk which, when freshly cut, is a very bright red/orange, Its colour makes it a favourite among woodworkers.
