Introduction: Reclaimed Pallet Wine Rack

Hello Instructables,

This is my first project, so please be gentle about the critics. I made a wine rack for 1 bottle and 4 glasses.

Materials:

2 x 12 cm x 110 cm wood (reclaimed from old pallets)

2 x 12 cm x 10 cm wood (reclaimed from old pallets)

Black paint (I used spray paint but any kind of paint is OK)

Tools:

Saw (I used table saw and jigsaw, but what you have is OK)

Drill

Sander

Clamps

Step 1: Measure, Clean and Prepare the Wood

Cut and sand all your pieces of wood. You do not need to make detailed sanding, its just need for cleaning the dirt of a used pallet.

Step 2: Make the Hole for the Bottle and Glasses

Make the hole with 38 mm drill bit. It almost fits with most of the bottles.

I used 25 mm drill bit for glass holders and open a 15 mm way for the glasses (unfortunately I forgot to take pictures)

Step 3: Assembly

Make the assembly. Pre-drilling holes will help to make better assembly.

Clamps are great helpers for exact fittings.

Step 4: Sanding

Before painting sanding is the most important part.

I used 60, 120,180 and 240 grd sand paper. Better way to understand its enought to make sanding is draw a line with a pencil and sand until it dissepears.

Sand until you have a soft, silky touch on the wood.

Step 5: Painting and Finishing

I used black spray paint to finish the wine rack. I paint for the first coat, let it dry for one and paint the second coat.

Wait for 24 hours to dry and make a smooth sanding with 240 grd sand paper (with hand not with the power tool)

Step 6: Hang and Enjoy

Hang your wine rack to the wall and enjoy it.
