Ever have someone ask “Hey can you make me two cork boards? One of New Jersey and one of the mitten of Michigan.” Well I did. Found some suitable images, traced them onto the cork board, then sawed away with a 1/4” bandsaw blade. It was interesting and pretty challenging to try and follow all the slight turns that composed the states outlines. The cork board cut like butter, but I did get some separation issues along the edges. The cork itself was a little under a 1/4” thick, with a full 1/4” piece of stiff cardboard as a backer. Touching the edges up with epoxy seemed to solve that problem. I then epoxied some small rare earth magnets on the back, since they were destined for a fridge. First time ever working with just cork board, and it was a pretty interesting and fun experience.
