Still on the pallet + wine thing, let's go a little harder. How about a triangular pallet wine rack for 6 bottles and 4 cups? Sounds good right?

Time to work.

Design by Douglas Schneider.

Materials:

Pallet

Screws

Wood glue

Varnish

80 grit sand paper

Tools:

Circular Saw

Jig Saw

Drill

Orbital Sander

1/2in flat drill bit

Hole Saw

Step 1: Draw and Think

Picture of Draw and Think

As I always recommend, try to draw whatever it is that you intend to make. Write down measurements and think about details before you make anything so the result comes as planned.

Select the wood that you're going to work on. If you wish to follow this tutorial completely, including measurements, the wood must be bigger than 50cm of length.

Step 2: Cut the Bigger Triangle

Measure 50cm from one end and mark it on all 3 pieces. Use a square to make the line straight and cut it with your circular saw set to 30º cuts. Do the same for the other end of the board.

Lay everything down and dry fit. If it fits as you expected start sanding.

Step 3: Sanding

Sand everything with 80 grit sandpaper.. If you want you can sand it again with the 220.

Step 4: Glue and Screw

Glue and screw the bigger triangle together. I used 3 screws for each joint.

Step 5: Smaller Triangle

For the smaller triangle, follow the same steps of the bigger one, but instead of cutting the wood with 50cm, cut it with 25cm instead.

Step 6: Back

For the back, lay a few pieces under the bigger triangle and trace the out line of it on to the boards.

Fasten it with glue and screws.

Step 7: Glue Smaller Triangle

Now you can measure and center your smaller triangle. Use glue to fasten it to the back panel. If you want you can screw it from the back as well.

Step 8: Bottle Holes

For the holes that will hold the bottles, drill them parallel to the ground with a 32mm (11/4in) hole saw. Drill the holes 13cm from the top of the triangle and 13cm from each other.

Sand the inside of each one.

Step 9: Cup Holders

Measure the middle of the bottom board and trace a line throughout all of it. Measure 9,5cm from the edge of the board and mark other 3 marks 9,5cm away from each other. Drill them with a flat 1/2in drill bit, trace 2 lines from the hole and use a jig saw to cut it out.

Step 10: Finishing

Use any type of finish that you want. I've used 3 coats of polyurethane based varnish. Wait a few hours between each coat so it can dry properly.

After that you can hang it on the wall using one or 2 screws and enjoy.

I made a more basic version of this. My friend was very happy with the french cleat to hang it. It was my second project with wood.

Hey! I made this for my girlfriend, was a fun a interesting build. Wondering how to mount it though. She's back from college at her parents. How could I hang it without it being permanent so she can take it with her to her eventual new home?

How did you mount it on the wall without the scews being visible?

what kind of glue did you use? is it white glue cause i see lots of people using them, im currently using dunlop glue, where it only sticks when the surface applied glue on is dried. i dont really like it so im looking for another alternative

Regular wood glue.

Interesting design and a fun build. I used some darker stain for the back boards to add some contrast. The only thing I added was to slightly recess the end of the glass slots on the top side of the board (where the glass bases hang), just to keep them from easily sliding off unintentionally. Thanks for the inspiration!

Just one word of caution, with the timber, full bottles and glasses there will be a lot of weight. I would suggest a minimum of 3 good sized screws to hold it up. Otherwise a very good 'ible, I like it.

Hey lancashiremon101! Thank you for the comment and the tip, although I'm using all 6 spots with full bottles and hanging it with only one screw for a couples weeks. I don't know the types of wall you got there, but maybe a few more screws would be more secure.

Thanks again!

This is really cool, by far better than the previous two versions. I think I should try to build a one like this ( but it probably won't come out well for me).

Thank you lamefreaks! Do it, and share with us the result! Have fun!
