    I bet if you talked to the right person at a nice restaurant you could get some for cheap.

    John,

    We make wine and have a LOT of spent corks. ;-)

    If you need some wine bottle sized corks, just PM you address to me and I will send you some. Too bad I didn't know two days ago, my lady friend just went back to Warren and Shelby Twp to spend some time with the new grandbaby. I could have sent them along with her.

    I don't know what size holes you have in your boxes, but drilling a 3/4 inch hole in supers use to be a common thing. You may want to look at wooden dowel rods. For a 3/4 hole Just cut a .750 inch long piece of 3/4 inch diameter dowel rod, smear on a little glue, and wham the plug flush in the hole with a mallet. I guess you could call this a FIX instead of a plug. Dowel rods come in many sizes.

    Scrapfe, I don't intend for the plugs to be permanent, just to close up holes if I need to. John

    If you need lots of them, consider . . . consider . . . consider . . .

    Oh, bother. Brain cramp.

    I ordered some from a place on line called, um, ah,

    widget dot com? widget company dot com? Or something to that effect.

    Sorry I can't be more specific, but I'm sure goggle will help. They were fast, a great price, and they have gazillions of them. If you want more than 5 or so, I'd give them a look.
