This time around I've been collecting wine corks for a while and was ready to do something with them.
A LONG time ago I made this with corks I had saved:
I wanted to try something different this time. I like the way the cork looks on the ends. I thought it would be cool to cut the corks into slices and glue them in rows and make a cork board.
First I tried cutting them with my Dremel tool. It worked on a few of them but ending up leaving burn marks on most of them.
So my first attempt hasn't worked out quite the way I thought it would. But I'm not ready to give up yet. The few cork slices that do look good are pretty cool. I want to try another method of cutting before I am ready to give up.
Do you ever have a project that doesn't go quite as planned? Has anyone ever tried to cut corks this way before that has had success? I'd love to hear about it!
