How Corks Are Made

cork

How do you make wine corks? First, strip the bark off of a cork oak. Then boil and flatten it. Drive a punch through the bark to create corks from whole pieces. What's left over can be ground up and turned into composite corks. You can view more pictures of the process at the link.
