This is a coffee table with a recessed top so I could arrange the corks around the Virginia Tech symbol. The VT symbol is made from the composite corks painted in VT colors. The entire top is covered in .250” Lexan.
My youngest son worked for an Italian restaurant while in high school and collected a lot of corks. No one cork repeats more than four times. We gave it to him on his 21st birthday at Virginia Tech.
We told him there was a hidden message on one of the corks (second picture).
