The Bank Works also features wine bottle cork stoppers.  I uniquely handcraft these Wine Bottle Cork Stoppers from many different kinds of hardwoods, most of which are found in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts.  My wood lathe is busy creating some of the finest designs which I consider a "reverence for wood."  My designs are numerous and depending on the grain of each block of wood; no two are exactly the same.  All of my Wine Bottle Cork Stoppers have a 1� inch quality "Flor" cork firmly glued to a 3/8 inch maple dowel, which is also glued 1 inch into the hard wood block.  "Flor" cork is the finest quality cork available.

Cork Stoppers Design #1 in Lucite Boxes
The number one design of each of these Wine Bottle Cork Stoppers is approximately 3 inches long. The designs of each one is creative and numerous as are the many kinds of wood or combinations of wood used.

Cork Stoppers Design #2The number two design of these Wine Bottle Cork Stoppers has an antique American Indian Head Penny, Buffalo Nickel, a Barber Dime or many other American coins like the 1943 Steel Penny inlaid into the top of the Wine Bottle Cork Stopper.

Cork Stoppers Design #3The number three design has uniform buttons inlaid onto the top of each stopper.  These include Army, Navy, Marines, Coast Guard, Air Force, Fire, Police as well as many others.

Cork Stoppers Design #4The number four design of these Wine Bottle Cork Stoppers has a Foreign Coin inlaid into the top of the Stopper.  I have a lot of Canadian Coins in penny, nickel and dimes, along with Irish, Barbados, Bermuda, or many other foreign countries.

Cork Stoppers Design #5The number five design has a Golf Ball on the top of the Wine Bottle Cork Stopper.  The lathe turned hardwood is one inch long and acts as the base to hold the Golf Ball.  This base also has a 3/8 inch Maple Dowel glued the full one inch into it.  The golf ball I secured to the base with a two inch dowel screw and glued in place.  These stoppers are approximately 3-1/2 inches long.  I use plain stamped golf balls of many manufactures or I use Logo golf balls from country clubs which use their own logos or businesses who advertise their company's names or logos.

Each of my designs, one, two, three, and four stoppers comes in a 3-1/4 inch by 1-1/2 inch acrylic square display case and my design five comes in a 4-1/4 by 2-1/4 acrylic square display case.  Each acrylic case has instructions of how to care for each stopper.  Displaying my best work in these quality acrylic containers lends an image of quality and professionalism to my Wine Bottle Cork Stoppers.
