    Nice ! I keep it in mind...

    That came out looking really nice. If you're going for the rustic look in your house, this fits in perfectly. Your idea for an ice bucket cutout was a good one too.

    Great idea! This is exactly what I should make with my extra pallet wood. I think I'll add some X-shaped shelves on the bottom for wine storage. Don't forget to mount a bottle opener!

    This is too cool - You are very talented! I could see this in my house, and love the added ideas that could be incorporated. Great imagination! Hope you rec'd top marks for your class project!!

    I seriously love this. I want to make one now. With a little shelf for beer cases. keep booze up top beer and mixer down in the rack hang glasses made from whiskey bottles and mason jars from the spoons.

    That's a great idea also! Was going to cut a hole in one side of the table for an ice bucket to sit in, but sadly ran out of time on the project (was for a class). Honestly the best thing about this is you have endless possibilities. All up to your imagination and ideas. But thanks for the comments! :)

    that's awsome

    This is a neat idea. We are working on a few pallet projects on our end too.
