The height dimension includes the cork.
These bottle stoppers are turned to a shape that allows some of the bark to remain. The dark spots are what is left of the bark once I achieve a shape. The wood is a cedar branch about 1″ thick. The cork is real cork and is held on with a dowel and glue. The cork will stay on. They are finished with friction polish.
I get new inspiration every day. I see a piece of wood and it tells me what it wants to be. I am constantly in the shop crafting new items, so if you see an item that you like, please click here to send me an email.
