These started as a way to use up the wine corks we have been saving over the years. The frames are from Cherry cut offs I had laying around (always keep your cutoffs) with 1/8” thin mahogany stock I had on hand for the backer. I set the backer in a 1/4” deep rabbit using the router and adhered them with epoxy. After that had set we flipped them over and flooded the inside with epoxy and set in the corks.
