Cork lids for Inkwells

Tuesday, September 29, 2015

I bought a glass inkwell at a thrift shop. I am not sure how old it is. I really like the oval shape and the pen rest.

I noticed that the inkwell has no lids on. So I made those lids out of cork that used in wine bottles.

I just did little sanding with a pice of sandpaper wrapping around the cork to fit tightly with the inkwell.

I varnished only the surface facing the bottom.

As a material, I am suprised how easily cork can be cut or reshaped. I am curiously wondering what else I can make with cork used in wine bottles.
