Here’s an easy fun Project. Pallet Bottle Rack
My wife wanted me to make this because we have a long wall space that needed something large to fill it up. I guess these are trendy now. You are supposed to actually cut the end off a pallet, which I did, but the wood was so disgusting, I didn’t even want it in the house. So I decided to make it out of Home Center lumber (which sometimes isn’t much better :)
It’s all 2X4’s & 1X4 pine. It was funny to go and just take whichever boards were on top and not have to dig through a dozen pieces looking for nice straight lumber. This one is 4 ft wide, but you can make it any size you need. I ended up distressing it with a rasp and a couple of framing nails, and then stained it to match the sideboard it’s hanging over. It is pretty heavy when full, so its mounted into the studs with 3/8×3 in lag screws.
Easiest project ever.
