How To: Make a Memo Board from Upcycled Wine Corks

My mom has been "saving" wine corks since the mid-90s. She puts them in a basket on her countertop, and says,she'll make a wreath out them. "For Christmas?" I'll ask. "No, for every day. Someday."

My mom will not be making a wreath out of wine corks.

But since she's got a whole heap of them, I'm thinking we need to create one of these upcycled wine cork bulletin boards.  

Construction seems pretty easy: Cut corks in half with that big red tool in this picture (what is that thing?!), and use wood glue to attach them to an old door or a simple piece of plywood:

Hi Julie.  That tool looks to be like a PVC Pipe Cutter. You can get them at Home Depot, Lowes, Harbor Freight, etc. created at: 03/21/2011

Hi! Thanks for including my project in your post. That tool thingy I believe is called a tube cutter. I'll have to check on that but it works beautifully. A friend of mine used a knife to cut them, which can be done, but is a little more difficult.
