Subject:
Lemon bottle stoppers. PICs

Dave Smith, Longview, WA
>A customer asked for bottle stoppers to use with bottles of lemon liquor he makes and gives to friends. I suggested lemon shaped stoppers dyed yellow. This is what I came up with. About 1 3/4" tall and 1 1/4" wide. The picture doesn’t show the little dimple in the top to simulate the stem scar. Turned from pear and dyed with Homestead lemon yellow(of all things) alcohol dye. Finished with several light coats of Deft gloss lacquer.



The stoppers are brighter and more yellow that the picturs show.

Comments welcome.
