I purchased Ruth Niles bottle stopper mandrel a few years ago Sadly, I am just now gettinmg time to use it! When I purchased it

I don't think she was including the drill bit as she does now. I see two sizes listed on her website, 5/16, and 11/32. I assume one is for hard woods and one for soft.  Anyone tell me which is which? I pan a trip to Woodcraft in the morning and would like to pick one up (along with a few other tidbits of course!)

Always, smaller for softer woods and larger for softer woods.  Don't confuse soft wood and hard wood with coniferous and deciduous - soft maple and other (hard)woods are soft enough to require the smaller bit. As a rule of thumb, if you can put a dent in it with your thumbnail, try the smaller bit first  - you can always come back with the large bit if need be.

I know that this curl can be used to any.
