Default Two Dymondwood Bottle Stoppers

Got these done this weekend. The finish is at least 6 coats of WTF sanded with Abranet 600 after the first two coats and then MM 4000 or 6000 between coats. The third picture is a shelf I added to my WTF finishing rack to allow me to do bottle stopper finishing off the lathe also. Thanks for looking C&C welcome.

Great bottle stoppers. I have to steal that idea for finishing bottle stoppers. Looks much better then using a broken pencil:)

Since the dyamond wood is stabalized, why do you apply an additional finish? I polish the blanks the same way I do acrylic and my customers love how low maintenance they are.
