Wine Cork Trivet // Becky Stern

This week I made a trivet from wine corks. It’s a quick and easy project to make, once
you’ve collected enough corks, or you can buy them online or from a home brewing store. The most basic version just requires a large
hose clamp and a screwdriver. Arrange the corks and tighten the screw until
it holds everything in place. I used a craft knife to cut down a few corks
that were longer than the rest. If you want your trivet to last more than
a few uses, or stand up to transportation and storage, you’ll want to glue the corks
together. I like to use E6000 because of it’s working
time, or how long you have to adjust the pieces before it starts to set up. It dries clear and flexible in about 24 hours. To add a personal touch, I cleaned and spray
painted the hose clamp before tightening it around the corks, and then I used some embarrassingly
dull sheet metal snips to trim off the end of the hose clamp. You can find a complete tutorial for this
project at the link in the description, with links to the materials and all that. Thanks so much for watching! If you liked this project, please give the
video a thumbs up, and subscribe to catch the next one.
