Since corks don't compost well, I wanted to put some of them to another use. At the same time I've been having a problem with damaging and losing USB cables for my various Android phones, since I've been carrying them loose in my Timbuk2 bag. I suppose could have done a better job of winding them up carefully, but that's annoying to do, given how often I use them.
So instead I made some cable winders out of some of the corks. It's extremely straightforward, and I won't belabor the point, since I made a YouTube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Yf6AaXevyY
I can't decide if this is a clever idea, or something lame that belongs on regretsy.com.
