Picture of Pallet Wine Rack

This is a simple wine rack made from the end section of a pallet. This can be made in around an hour and a half depending on what tools you use. You can make it with hand tools and a drill but is a lot easier with power tools. It's simple, easy and cheap to make, and women love them.

Step 1: Cutting the pallet

Use a circular saw or hand saw and cut in the indention of the pallet where fork lift forks go. The height of the wine rack will be roughly 16-17 inches tall depending on where you cut it.

Step 2: Pulling boards off for the bottom

You'll need two boards for the bottom of the wine rack, you can use the center of the pallet to get these boards. Using a hammer and a pry bar or whatever you have to get in between the boards, hammer it in and pry them off. This may take some practice and be frustrating because the ends have a tendency to crack and break, but eventually you'll get the hang of it or get quality wood that wont crack.

Step 3: Cutting small pieces

You'll need 3 smaller pieces to separate the board that holds the glasses and supports the bottom. You can get these by cutting up the bigger section of pallet that the boards are nailed in to. The pieces need to be the length of the board and 1x1 or a little bigger if you'd like. You can use a hand saw to cut them up or whatever you have. I used a circular saw to cut them off the pallet then used a band saw to cut them to dimension.

Step 4: Sanding

Pallets are usually rough so I sand them down to make them look better and prevent getting splinters. Depending on how rough it is, I just used 120 grit and then 220 grit to finish.

This instructable is easy to follow and very detailed, I have only one remark on the design though. Wine should never be stored top side up, unless it is being served wine should always be stored with a "wet cork", in other words, wine that is stored this way will result in something you will not enjoy drinking in the future.

For beer or anyother drink that does not require being stored as wine, this is a great design.
