Cork Avons

Between painting the bathroom ceiling touching up the tiles and the long list of other DIY tasks I have got, I managed to get finished three cork avons I have been working on for friends abroad. The first two are Canada bound and the last one with the longer tip is heading to Denmark.

  1. Lovely work as always George, the cork gives them a real traditional feel.

  2. Cheers Col, I managed to procure some decent cork which helps, got a few smaller ones coming soon, and those I do like ;)

  3. Still can't work out how you sand a piece of cork without it crumbling to bits...

    1. Oh, like clearing landmines, then? I can do that.
