The last thing you want on your beautiful hardwood are furniture marks. that won’t happen if you put cut up corks on the bottom of the furniture.
Here’s how to do it: Using a sharp knife, cut 1/4″-thick rounds from a cork. Add a spot of wood glue to each disc and attach to the bottom of chair or table legs. The soft material cushions the furniture, protecting the wood from scratches and allowing the legs to slide effortlessly and safely across the floor. You can also use it to stabilize a wobbly table, glue a single slice of cork to the bottom of the shorter leg.
