Cork Stopper

Display: Liquid Refreshments
Culinary Technique: forming

Dimensions: 2.5" h x 2.5" w x 15" d

This hinged tool holds a sliding plunger rod in its top half and accepts a cork in its base. The base of the wooden cylinder is shaped to fit around the neck of a bottle, and its interior tapers from top to bottom. This tapered end compresses the cork, which the metal-tipped plunger forces into a bottle.
