Steadying a Chair

Martha Stewart Living, November 1998

Once they've done their duty as wine-bottle stoppers, corks can come in handy elsewhere in the house. In the kitchen or dining room, they are a simple solution to an exasperating problem: a wobbly chair. Simply cut a slice of cork horizontally from the top end with a bread knife and slip it under the troublesome leg. Be careful when slicing since your measurement will be an educated guess, you'll want to have enough cork left over for a try.
