These three Scottish brothers were carved for a friend.  They are about 5cm by 5cm by 10cm tall, not counting the stainless steel stoppers.  The stoppers are recessed into the bottom of the carving about 18mm  so the neck of the bottle is hidden.   Basswood and acrylic paints.

Do not speak about your language (I use an IT translator also), be indulgent with me.

If you are asking if they are stuck into the wood holder, the answer is no.  I just drilled 6mm holes to place them in they would be upright for the photos.

The stainless steel stopper is screwed into the wood.  I drill a 1.25 inch hole with a Forstner bit to recess the stopper, then I drill a 11/32 inch hole for the screw.  The screw end of the stopper is a 3/8 inch x 16 thread size.
