The top of this bottle topper is created with Bird's Eye Maple that was a scrap left over by a guitar maker in Santa Maria, California.
There is a local cabinet shop here in Lompoc, California that has given me permission to "dumpster dive" through their discards and scraps at the end of the work day. One day I happened up the most wonderful light walnut piece. The grain is abundant and striated. The walnut wood begged to be rescued from the dumpster and of course I was just the person to rescue it and give it new purpose.
