Hot-cork heat-mat

Ok so i got the idea for this from poog's father-in-law who (like SuperD and myself) drinks a lot of wine and therefore needs to think of creative ways to dispose of the corks.

He had his made using decent quality wood and by someone who knew what they were doing .......but, true to form, i was too impatient to be bothered trying to get good wood, and didn't mind a bit "having a go" when i didn't know what i was doing.
So this is my attempt at a wine cork heat mat.

The handle and the little heart cut-out are a bit off centre and not very symmetrical but i was using a £0.99 junior hacksaw and some off-cuts from my garden fence, so in view of that, i'm pretty happy with the way it turned out!!!!
