Cork Your Board

One of the most common keepsakes of any wine pilgrimage to the Napa Valley are corks…those cylinder objects that take the hands of a man and touch of a woman to pry from the grips of many bottles. Many beautiful wines have found themselves tragic homes to sunken corks. Sometimes it’s just a casualty of war. However, for those who manage to safely pry the things loose from the body and keep hundreds of them, this is the kind of project for you…

Paraphernalia:

  • A piece of plywood for the back of board – size determines on how big you would like it
  • Corks
  • Elmer’s Wood glue
  • PVC Pipe Cutter

3 2

Steps:

  1. 1. Take your piece of plywood. The size of the plywood determines the size of your corkboard.
  2. 2. Using the wood glue, glue the corks going across the board. Cut corks in half using the cutter for the ends of the board.
  3. 3. Take your time gluing the corks onto the board so that they stick and are neatly in a row. It’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey.

NOTE: Be creative!

They have a variety of uses and can be thrown together on any rainy day. So next time you’re at Baldacci or any other winery in the area, be sure to grab a couple of corks and make your own masterpiece!
