So you drank all the wine to get the corks and then you made the trivets. I hope some time passed between those two happenings? I’m guessing it did because all of your miters look great pottz! Nice work!

32×9 = 288 bottles. That explains why there are very few vineyards left here in the Southland. They couldn’t keep up with you, so they gave up.

Are the corks glued in?

I had to google what a trivet is…now i feel like my old pot holders aren’t classy enough.

Nice work on the miters and splines. I also like the variety of the wine corks.

I have a bucket full of them so maybe I will give this a try.

I bet looking back there’s a story behind every cork. A interesting and conversational piece for sure.
Well done pottz.

Looks fantastic
LBD will love them
Box guy will love the splines
I see a Abranet disk too.. No w a question how long did it take the prepare the materials ?
I see Mark has done a tally 32×9 = 288 bottles .

Interesting to see cork is still used as a stopper, mind you wine is like abranet to me.

Excluding of course port for me but like LBD I would buy a cask !

Some Trivia :- I remember years ago I had a C10 BSA motorbike it had a cork clutch and you could replace the segments if needed.

I love the overall project too! Merry Christmas.

hey did LBD sent you the car accident he nearly had?

Great project. I have about a five gallon can of wine corks that someone gave me a couple of years ago. Been trying to figure out what to do with them. I may have to try this project out. Excellent job !!! Mel

Most of Dem corks came from wine way above my pay scale:) Besides I’m more of a Scotch or Cognac drinker, not sure if they come with anything other than a cork? You mean there were some splines under all that Glue:)
Good job, guess I should post some of my Wood Butcher on of these days?

C’mon pottzy, I have to ask… does it come in a cask size?... empty bladders!

Neat mitres… and I can now see why you asked about the gluebot… or was it rc... anyway, whoever it was, happy-snap #5 is a testament to why one needs a gluebot!

Notice that DeWalt doing a Mirka impersonation… is that your attempt to make up the 2 ROS equivalent of a 1 Rotex?

It’s better not to make friends… that way you don’t have to make so many bleeding prezzies… though having to populate them may be a justification. I’ll drink to helping you find residents for the trivets…

Nice Potz…
I’ve always thought those cork trivets were cool. Almost cool enough to start drinking wine heavily! Lol.
