Absolutely. It's actually quite easy to pull apart. This cork won't need that frequent of maintenance since it's not exposed to the elements, but a dab of neatsfoot oil once a season or so can only help it.
I plan to do some videos soon to show the process. I'm still moving in to my new office, so hopefully I can get to it very soon.
