I made this at the TechShop (www.techshop.ws) in Menlo Park.

This is a continuation of the series of Instructables for the Cork Board Project.

These boards need two surrounds of corks lying horizontally. For convenience in mixing and matching the corks, I created a jig for gluing a line of corks together, end to end. When the glue has set, the line of corks can be treated as a unit. You may find this is convenient both in design and assembly.

The corks are dabbed with glue on the ends and put in the jig, one by one. Then the bolts at the end are gently tightened to hold them in place as the glue sets. Later the units are removed for use in the cork boards. This system allows for treating the cork boards as a production line if you want to do it that way.

This was designed for my project, but will be useful for anyone making similar corkboards.
