I got my hands on a bunch of bottle corks yesterday and made this:

so there's that. It's not glued in place, I found that if you can distribute the empty spaces sparsely enough it will hold by static friction alone. These can be filled by chopping one sacrificial cork.

I've been very off and on with one piano project since January, but it's nowhere near ready to be played.

I used to save a lot of corks for my handcrafted decorative bottles.

People have made some pretty bad ass murals out of cork over the years. Have you considered making one yourself? It'd probably be equal parts puzzle and art.

Not really, no. I wasn't even aware that cork was so popular as a medium. I'll think about it, but it was something that seemed like a cool way to kill an hour or two. You can learn all sorts of things while simulations run in the background. Before that, I was making paper planes and Warhammer scenarios. :P

However, if one 'sekrit project' I have for summer will fail or prove itself to be beyond my ability or amount of free time, then I might default to doing something more ambitious with cork.
