Step 1: Dismantling the pallets

Use a pallet prier like the one I built or a crowbar for dismantling the pallets.

I made this tool based on this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IpLZgPt_K_k, but there are a lot of other methods listed on instructables or youtube of how to dismantle a pallet.

I asked my wife to demonstrate how to use the tool to show that any person can do it.

After dismantling it, remove the nails.

Step 2:

Separate the wood trying to match size/type/thickness.

Once you have done that, choose the type of wood you want for each part of the wine rack and start transfering your design measures to the wood.

Step 3: Cutting/Gluing top and bottom

Start by cutting the wood for the top and bottom panels.

Sand them with the 80 grit sandpaper and try to remove the roughness from the sides so the glue can stick better to it.

Use wood glue on each side of the wood and use the clamp that you have. I didn't have any so I used this clamping method.
