The stopper, made of silicone, seals air out of the bottle to keep it's contents fresh. The wood is turned on a lathe, sanded and finished with four coats of polish, all by hand. This creates a beautiful shine that brings out the natural beauty of the wood.  It is a water proof, high gloss finish that is non-toxic and non-flammable after drying. Over time, the oils from your hand will enhance the finish and the wood may darken.

Bubinga Wood:

Bubinga is a species of tree belonging to the family Fabaceae. The wood is often used by luthiers for harps and other instruments, such as bass guitars, because of it’s mellow and well-rounded sound. Warwick Bass and Ibanez are known to use Bubinga. Drum companies such as Tama offer various high-end drum kits with plies of Bubinga in the shells. Crafter also use Bubinga on some of their instruments. Bubinga is used in both acoustic and electric guitars for its figure and hardness. It is sometimes used in the production of archery bows, and also in furniture making, usually for tables, as large slabs of the dense wood can be cut to be used for table tops. Bubinga is used in the production of handgun grips and luxury car maker Lexus also makes use of the wood in their luxury vehicles. Having an appearance similar to the mineral tiger eye, Bubinga is light brown through dark brown and red, some samples show as almost purple.

No duplicating equipment is used in my work, therefore, even with like woods, no two Bottle Stoppers will be identical. This Bottle Stopper is truly one of a kind.
