A wobbly table is one of life's minor, yet avoidable, annoyances. Save the cork from your next bottle of wine to make a travel-friendly wobble fixer.

If you have a wine cork and a steady hand, you can turn the cork into a dozen disks, perfect for throwing in a laptop bag to steady wobbly coffee shop tables. Never get stuck perched on one side of the table again trying to keep your coffee and laptop steady. The comments on the tutorial are full of great ideas, including using a film canister to store them, and adding sticky tape so that the tables you fix will stay wobble free in the future.
