So, my wife collects all these corks from wine bottles, champaign bottles, etc. I was at the point where they were just taking up space. So, I decided it was time to make serving tray out of them and some scraps of wood and left over pieces of plexiglass. This is the result of my efforts which will be a gift to my Sister In Law who wanted one.

That is a great tray, Gunny!! Do have any blue wine bottles laying around that go with the corks?? I just got a blue wind bottle project from my wife!

Cheers, Jim

I’m glad you like the tray. The only drawback to it is cutting all the corks and then gluing them to the bottom before assembly. I have to find a better way of doing that before the assembly of the whole tray. But thanks for the inputs.
