So I was looking at some used wine corks today and noticed that they look like little logs. So I thought I'ld give carving a cork a try. Maybe I'll make a necklace out of it.

Cool!

Are you going to dip them in resin so they dont break up?

Or maybe soak them in wine (or rum - or even better - mai-tai) when not wearing it, so you always have the miasma around you when wearing them -and keep them moist?

What a great idea!

Look forward to seeing the final product.

Genius! I am definitely going to make some cork tikis myself! Mahalo for the idea!

I like wine. I collect corks because I think they look and feel cool but I am not sure about how to use them in my bar... I have put them inside a glass jar and they look ok, but that's not enough. Any ideas? What other things can you do to artistically to recycle corks from wine bottles? I thought about making a frame for a painting... what else?

Wow, it's been a while since my first post. I'm glad you like the idea. You could always put a few on a string and make a necklace or you could just add some to your collection in a jar to add some visual interest.

It would be neat to make a bar top out of them. Lay them all down and either cover them with tempered glass, or better yet, use pourable resin. That would look super cool!
