Pat, I've used cork in the past but have moved away from it because of difficulties in shaping the material. It doesn't sand easily, and cuts tend to make the cork crumble a bit. Smooth cuts are rare.

Do you have a trick for shaping cork? Maybe I'm just using inferior material.

And maybe you just use it as is with no adjustments?

Thanks for any input.
