Step 1: Selected, Broke Apart and Sorted the Pallet Wood

Selected and broke apart a couple of pallets and sorted out the pieces needed for the project.

Labeled and measured out  all the pieces as needed.

Two side pieces 2" x 4" x 12"
One base piece 2" x 4" x 19-1/2"
Four pieces is 1/2" x 3.5" x 19-1/2"

Step 2: Cut to Size and Sand

The pallet wood was cut to size and sanded as needed using 150grit sand paper.

The two side pieces were cut at an angle using a table say at a 10 degree angle and sanded.

Step 3: Staining

All the wood was then sanded again at 220 grit and then stained.

Step 4: Assembly

Once the stain dried. All the pieces was assembled using hot glue to check for fit and added strength.

Holes were drilled into the assembly and the wood pieces screwed in place.

One coat of clear gloss polyurethane was then applied to the rack.

Thats it, the whole process took about two hours.

NOTE: Pallet wood has a lot of cut nails and metal pieces in it. Use a magnet to check the wood before making any cuts.
