- Sharp pocket knife
- Pick tool of some sort, either a small flat head screw driver (will be used to hollow out inside of cork)
- Piece of small tubing, I used an old broken tent pole cut down, you can use anything that will fit inside of the cork
- bottle of good wine and real cork (not the new rubbery corks)
- wine glass to drink the wine as you work on the project!
Step 1: Preparing the cork
Next push the tubing into the center of the bottom cork to make a depression that will act as our template when we begin hollowing the inside. You may find it easier to see the depression if you mark it with a pen.
