Rack for a Bottle and 2 Cups Out of Pallet

Tools:

Circular saw

Jig Saw

Drill

Orbital Sander

1/2″ Flat drill bit

Hole saw

Materials:

A small Pallet
Screws

Wood glue

80 grit sand paper

Step 1: Select and Dismantle

Select the pallet that you simply want to use for your project and start to dismantle it.

I’ve found that a rubber hammer is pretty good for the work, because it not only achieve an equivalent result as a daily hammer, but it also doesn’t leave any marks after hiting the wood.

Use a crow bar or a daily hammer to get rid of the nails from the boards.

Step 2: Back Panel

Select 3 boards for the rear panel. attempt to choose the boards that the edges are as straight as possible therefore the glue will have an honest contact surface.

Mark 60cm on each board.

Sand the edges slightly with great care the wood can adhere more to the opposite .

Use many wood glue and spread it together with your fingers or whatever you’ve got around, and use clamps to carry the pieces togheter.

If you do not have big clamps, you’ll use staples therefore the joints are often as tight as possible.

Don’t worry about the looking. After everything is completed the marks from the staples are going to be removed.

Step 3: Cutting the Cups Support

While the back panel dries, start building the cups support.
Measure the width of the back panel and cut 2 pieces with the same measurements.

Step 4: Drilling Holes for the Cups

In one of the boards that you cut previsouly measure the middle of the width and trace a line, do the same for the height.
By doing that you’ll be splitting the wood in 2 exact pieces. Measure the middle of each piece and drill a hole with the 1/2″ flat drill bit.
After that trace 2 lines from the edges of the hole to the edge of the wood and cut it out with a Jig Saw.
Cut also 2 spacers with 3cm of height.

Step 5: Sanding and Gluing

Sand all pieces from the cups support and use wood glue and clamps to glue everything togheter.

Step 6: Bottle Holder

For the piece that will hold the bottle, cut one of the board’s ends with the circular saw with a 45º angle. Measure 28cm from this end and cut again with 45º angle but in the opposite direction (it will look something like this /____\).

Step 7: Bottle Hole

Still on the bottle holder piece, measure 9,5cm from one end of the board and use the hole saw to drill. You can choose between drilling it with a 90º angle from the board to the drill or with an angle.
Remember that the hole saw needs to be a little bit bigger than the bottleneck’s.
Sand the inside of the hole.

Step 8: Dry Fit and Cutting Back Panel

Use the circular saw to do your last cut of the project.
Cut where you marked the 60cm on the back panel.
Dry fit everything and check if it goes as expected.

Step 9: Final Gluing

Glue everything togheter. Use screws from the back of the back panel to fasten everything.

Step 10: Finishing

Apply 2 coats of polyurethane based varnish and let it dry for atleast 24 hours.
After that hang it on the wall and enjoy your piece of art.
