DIY photo frame to pin photographs

I have a feature wall in my living room and want to place a large Cork board so that I can pin up PhotoGraphs of friends and family. Where can I get a large cork board? I would ideally like a frame around it as well (no glass but just a wooden border) any suggestions on how to get this done? Thanks so much

Bunnings has square cork tiles that you could use to make a board as big as you like - https://www.bunnings.com.au/305-x-305-x-6mm-natural-cork-tile-6-pack_p6690244

 

You could then build a simple frame around it - https://www.bunnings.com.au/diy-advice/home-improvement/planning-and-projects/how-to-make-a-diy-pict...

 

How big were you thinking? I'm sure it could look great.
