Acacia Bakeri, known as the Marblewood is one of the largest of all Acacias, growing to 40 meters tall is is a long lived climax rainforest tree from eastern Australia. Unlike most Acacias, fire is not required for seed germination. The tree is considered vulnerable to extinction. Its former habitat is lowland sub tropical rainforest which has been mostly cleared in the 19th and 20th century. The natural range of distribution is from Brunswick Heads in north eastern New South Wales to Maryborough, Queensland.

The wood has beautiful grain patterns that are different in each piece. Marblewood is used extensively in the making of cabinets. It is hard to work with but turns well on a lathe. It also polishes very well. Due to these reasons, it is a popular wood among wood turners

The Marblewood 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.

The stopper, made of silicone, seals air out of bottles, to keep the contents fresh.

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.
