I like it. Does it open to take the corks out?

Great idea! Here in Portugal we use too much cork and export! Congratulations on recycling!

Thanks All. To remove corks put finger in hole and push back open. The back is only held in place by close fit in rabbit edge. Store corks for the look mostly but when you get enough saved there are hundreds of items you can make yourself , Try google search(wine cork crafts, wine cork ideas) especially images and videos. Some people are selling on Ebay by the box full. Also check out the video i posted on Youtube of the fountain i made with corks floating on water. The video is mitjesset. I guess i could place it on a board and put it on here as a woodworking project :-) . Thanks, Mitch

Looks great! I’m glad someone else is making these. This weekend I cut the sides for 25 of these to get ready for the Christmas rush. I tell you what, you make one or two of these for friends and everyone wants one!

Oh, and for those wondering why save you’re corks? Why not, it’s just a cool way to show off that you love wine, or that you drink a lot of wine, or in my case, you don’t drink a lot of wine and it’s going to take 50 years to fill mine up.

Nice! :)

It would take me about 30 years to fill one of those up with corks though.

Now, if I could figure out a design for one that took cigar bands without smushing them, I’d be all set.

Nice box and is the purpose of the corks for decoration? They do look pretty good in there.
