How to build a wine rack from pallets,how to build a wooden kitchen trash can holder,wolf wood carving pattern,carving bench hook - For Begninners
If you are looking for a fun and easy project to tackle I’d highly recommend building a pallet wine rack. Add your two spacers to the bottom of your piece like seen below The spacers are 3 inches wide and provide space to slide in the bottom of the wine glasses. We used a stud finder to determine where the studs were and simply used screws to attach the rack to the wall on the studs which were 16 inches on center. We got an inkling for a project this weekend and thought about how cool a wine rack made out of an old pallet would be.
Below is a photo of a pallet we found behind a local hardware store in our home town of Bozeman, Montana. It is a good idea to ask the manager in the store prior to taking any pallets in case they are still using them.
In the photo below we are experimenting with spacing to decide how big to create the wine rack. You could also use a mixture of steel wool and vinegar to age the wood, similar to how I finished the farm table.
Retail stores get shipments in on pallets frequently and are usually happy to give away their extra pallets.
