Thanks Albert, in terms of longevity of the finish its hard to say to be exact. Unlike pens most stoppers tend to be for display and rarely are handled on a daily basis. I can tell you that I have a few cork stoppers that have been around for nearly a year (they dont move as quick) and they get handled most weeks as I put them on display at the markets I attend and the finish looks just fine. If you want to give them an extra something you can always add a light coat of micro-crystal wax.

I did try CA finish early on but found it a PITA for stoppers.

FWIW I sold about half this batch at last weekends show so the customers thought the finish looked and felt good :-)
