こんばんは。How’s it going?

We bought a cool wine bottle stopper when we were in Barcelona. But as you can see from the photo, it doesn’t fit our a standard wine bottle. ☹️ Which is surprising. Or maybe this bottle stopper is made for a different type of bottle? Who knows.

I want to somehow reduce the diameter of the cork, but I am not sure if there is a special way to do it since it is a very soft wood. Should I use sandpaper? A sharp knife to widdle it down? Hmmm… I guess a bit of Googling is in order.

I hope you had a good day.
