Thanks for the pics!
I see that TAP Plastics sells a 1" plastic box. I’ll grab a bunch of those in a week or so.
You inspired me to try my hand at the “Relics” bottle as well, Elvis
I found a tassel on ebay but I think yours looks closer - where did you get it?
Here are some more screencaps of the thing… It’s funny but their replacement stopper (using the cork from the 1800 stopper) apparently came apart during the bridge scene - it’s visibly stuck in the neck of the bottle when Scotty pours and drinks from the bottle.
Also visible is some text on the label: “5344” Does that look familiar to anyone? Still can’t make sense out of the rest of the label…
For the stopper I’m using a 1 13/16" round wooden drawer pull / knob that I found at Home Depot (https://www.homedepot.com/p/Liberty-1-13-16-in-46mm-Unfinished-Wood-Round-Knob-P10515C-BIR-C5/100156480). The shape on the underside seems like it could be a little more full (maybe convex instead of concave) but the size and overall shape feels close to me.
Here’s the 1800 stopper disassembled, along with the knob. I turned down its base to a size that the original stopper washer and cork would fit over it.
Not sure how best to affix the cork to the new stopper. Maybe it should be left loose as that’s technically screen accurate too!
On my first version, I put the screw through the hole of the cork into the knob, then filled the cork with hot glue. Its a bit messy, but held really well. As for the tassels, I picked mine at Hancock Fabrics before they went bankrupt, and have since found them at Joannes.
Great, thanks for the tip! I’ll go take a look at Joann’s. I was sad to see Hancock Fabrics close… My mom got so much fabric and yarn there when I was little, and they were always very helpful with Halloween costumes and other projects over the years.
If I can find some food-safe epoxy I’ll try that same tactic with the cork/stopper attachment
Ethan, I got my tassle at Fabricland. It was one of two in the package which were connected by a thick red thread. I snipped that, then wrapped it around the hemp twine and afterward snipped off the excess.
I think I might have come across the same red tassle on eBay that you did. Was going to buy it, then thought I could probably find something local. Good thing I held off on buying on eBay
Food safe epoxy? I hadnt thought of that. Now if we can only get the label done…
These are so cheesy. I get the emails from StarTrek.com so I see all the merchandise they’re pushing. So much of it is just cornball stuff.
I stumbled upon this image of Shran looking sad and drowning his sorrows in some blue hooch…
That’s a cool little addition to the Trek bottle universe, and I was actually able to figure out what it is.
It took me a minute but I tracked this bottle down, it’s the Kitchen Craft World of Flavours Italian Glass 400ml Oil & Vinegar Bottle. I bought it on eBay for $16.99.
Not a major score but still it’s fun when you see a new bottle on screen and then manage to track it down.
That’s actually a very nice looking bottle.
The slightly flared, straight-line, speed pour top gives it a clean, polished look.
I agree, it’s kind of alien but not ridiculous.
Nice! The red ones are rarer, right?
Can you show it from more angles, and with the top off?
No matter where you go, guys are always about the topless pics.
Yes, I believe the red ones are harder to find, I was very happy to find this one. I wouldn’t mind grabbing a green one at some point, though.
I believe that the bottom plug is only to allow full air circulation when drying so that any moisture trapped between the inner steel bottle and the outer plastic pitcher can be mitigated. I was thinking that the black plastic base might spin or pull off to be able to fully access the steel bottle, but it doesn’t appear to come off.
Thanks! Where’d you get it, eBay?
ironic - the green one is THE hardest one to find. i have the red and blue one, they’re the only ones i’ve ever come across. one time i did find a green one - but the seller wanted $200 for it… out of my price range at the time.
Wow, that is crazy. I paid $15.00 for it on ebay…
Guess I got lucky.
