Makezine's Laura Cochrane spotted this gorgeous cork chair at Lynmar Estate winery in Sebastopol, CA.
The cork chair's origins are a mystery. What's under all of those reclaimed wine corks? Did they cover an old chair that was past its prime? Did the build some sort of frame to cover? Cochrane wasn't entirely sure.
Whether it's made fro all corks or corks covering some kind of frame, I also wonder about what they used as an adhesive. There don't seem to be any physical materials holding the corks together, so they must have used a wood glue or maybe epoxy. It would have to be something strong to hold up to all of the drunken winery patrons having a sit-down on it, right?
This cork project may be a mystery, but if you want to get your cork crafting on, here are a few ideas for you:
