Black & White Ebony Bottle Stopper

WinebottlestopperShort

Black & White Ebony (Diospyros embryopteris) is one of the prettier woods I work with and when it’s paired up with a solid piece of chromed steel, you can get some striking looks. This bottle stopper was made after a conversation with one of my best friends. I’d made a wine bottle stopper for her some time ago as a gift, but it was too tall for the capped bottle to fit into her fridge. She reminded me of it recently, so I gave this stopper a wide button shape instead of the long hand-gripping shape we normally see.

The stopper is equally useful for protecting your oil, vinegar and other liquids in storage bottles, and adds a touch of class to your kitchen counter.

Black & White Ebony Slimline Ballpoint Pens

These pens are made from Black & White Ebony (Diospyros embryopteris) which is also known as Pale Moon Ebony or White Ebony. There are so many species of Ebony in the world that it’s sometimes difficult to classify what you’re working with, but I’m pretty sure this is correct. I bought the wood from a woodcraft store that offers off-cuts from custom shops.

Mechanism:
The mechanisms are all Cross style and refills are readily available in most office supply stores.

Finish:
The pen was sanded up to 400 grit, then burnished with 0000 steel wool to bring up a smooth surface. It was then finished with mineral oil, bee’s & carnauba wax and a final polish with paraffin wax.

Price: US$35

The two blanks for this pen were cut from the same piece of wood but the black lace only showed up in the upper piece. Striking, huh?
