Things to make because you have a serious drinking problem!

It’s a real corkboard!

- 176 corks (and we had leftovers)
- Pine frame with a birch plywood backing

The finish is a cherrywood gel stain with a pre-stain to eliminate blotchiness.

Hmm, bottles empty, gotta go!

”176 corks” Looks like you’ll have to empty a bunch more so that you can start on the next one.

I’ve been saving corks for years for a project like this. What kind of glue did you use? Thanks for posting. And cheers!

Glen, Just regular wood glue.
A couple of words of warning if your going to make one. Avoid plastic or those spongy corks, the glue doesn’t bond well to them. I actually had a couple come out and had to replace with real cork.

Pre-measure the corks first before determining the frame, that way they fit nice and you wont have to shave or cut any of them.

One thing I didn’t do but was considering is if you don’t have many corks you could cut them in half. Still should give the cork look, just wont be a raised up. On the other hand I bet the glue would hold them great!

Popsnsons – Im way ahead of you. Enjoying a glass right now!

Cheers

Looks good. I’ve done a coffee table top like that in the past. Was a wood table with glass inserts so I painted some thin plywood black and mounted it with just enough room between it and the glass. Looked great. Unfortunately the table went with my ex-wife. I kept the corks though. Was still a good deal. :)
