I finally got around to using the pallet I've been storing in the workshop since last Spring. I had a special request for a pallet wine rack, so I was able to squeeze four of them out of a single 48" x 40" pallet.
Cutting apart the pallet was the easy part. I just drew some lines where I wanted to cut and use my jig saw to cut it into the four wine racks. I used my table saw to rip about 1" off the bottom of the front board of each one, being careful not to hit any nails. Then I inserted some scrap plywood pieces for the bottom of each bottle section.
I cut some plywood strips for the glass hanger boards and attached them to the bottom. I made a pattern so I could space the glass hanger slots out evenly. The extra 1" I ripped off the front piece allows for the bottoms of the glasses to slide in.
I brushed on polyurethane to seal the wood and that gave the wine racks a nice golden color. These were fun to make and I plan to hang one in our dining room. I will sell the others and use that money to fill mine up! Cheers!
