Where to find cork in Fallout 76

Most of the materials in Fallout 76 have a decent list of items that they can come from. Rubber, for instance, comes from a decent amount of junk items in the game. Cork, on the other hand, only comes from a handful of items found throughout Appalachia. If you are a player who wants to use lightweight armor, you will be needing a lot of cork to both craft and repair your armor. You will also need cork to add modifications to your crafted armor. If you don’t know where to find it, you will surely run out of this precious material.
