Reusing Wine Bottle Corks
I have a bizarre sentiment for cork, especially wine bottle corks. Not the nasty plastic ones, but the real soft corks. Hence the collection of corks in our spare room. I have been thinking about how to make good use of them for the longest time, but nothing came up until recently - when I'm packing for a move.
I was trying to flat pack our Ikea side tables, but when I unscrewed the legs, these long and dangerously pointy screws were left sticking out.
Then I thought of our collection of wine bottle corks:
The sharp pointy screws are now well wrapped up and no one would get hurt. Hording on the old corks did pay out eventually.
