Simply said, I really like buying stopper components from Ruth Niles directly. As a gift, which she does randomly, I received a pre-drilled and tapped segmented wood stopper blank. Here it is after turning and many coats of CA.

Thanks Ruth, I’ll be back whenever I need more hardware.

Have to agree with you Mark. Ruth just recently sent me an email asking about a recent order I had received, something I've never received from any other vendor. That's a great looking stopper and I'm really hoping to get a stopper, or many more, turned for family and friends. Thanks for posting this.

Nicely done and a superb finish Mark!

I also use Ruth’s stoppers....top quality and her stopper mandrel makes it easy.
I enjoy a chance to chat with her by phone once in a while or at a show.

That is a nice blank and your creation with it even better!!

Ruth Niles is an amazing person and I always love speaking with her. The best place and only place I get stopper hardware and components. The Joyner Offset Jig is another great item she sells (the original and authorized one as well).
