Does anyone know where I can get some cork boards....not a bulletin board type, or the squares that you can glue on the wall...I need a piece about 1" thick by 16x20 or so. I have a 12"x12" piece, but I need something bigger. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Cork Store
go to The Cork Store

I posted this a long time ago, but I buy the 1" stuff in 2' x 3' sizes, pretty reasonable. I make cork paddles from it.

Also look up places that sell cork for duck decoy blanks!
bigger chunks, firmer cork...

Lousy cork soakers.

The great thing about the cork soaking is that while you are soaking the cork, you can also massage the grapes, until the cork is ready.
