I have been turning wood since 2004. Through this blog you can find out what I am working on currently, and more information about my work, and materials.
Wine Cork Inlay...
As most of your know, I love to find new materials to use for Inlay. The other day while looking through my supplies, I found some Bottle Stopper Cork. My mind instantly started working up a way to use it for inlay.
I choose a piece of Claro Walnut Burl. The dark color of the Walnut contrast well with this base color of the Cork. After finishing, the Cork, has a stronger surface so that it does not scratch as easy. It does make the ring very light.
After finishing this ring I thought how it would make a great gift for Wine Lovers. I know that many wine connoisseurs collect the corks from their favorite wines. If provided with one of these corks, I could turn it into a custom ring with great meaning for the wearer.
