This is a real handy holder I came up with for those delicate tools such as pin vice, delicate tweezers, sewing needles and pins. Even the stray craft blade.

I glued nine wine corks to a jar lid. And that is it. The jar is holding pens and pencils, and this tool holder keeps delicate and sharp tools right where I need them. It’s a great pin/needle holder too.

    Not to get technical, but it looks like 9 corks to me. Great idea!

      Good catch. Thanks. I edited her quote.
