The cork chair, in all its glory. If cork chairs could talk — oh, the stories of tipsy tourists this one would tell!

Back in March, I went wine tasting with some friends. At one of the wineries — Lynmar Estate in Sebastopol — I came across this awesome chair made of corks! I don’t know whether the entire thing was corks, or if they were covering some kind of base.

Corks are a great crafting material to upcycle. I know you can make furniture, floor mats, and cork boards (duh!), but what other clever ideas have you come across for using corks?
