It has Charactor and it works
recycled pallets made into a wine rack. note, this is the wrong type of pallet. I used them anyway. Also, when I screwed them together, I made sure they were offset so the imbalance will keep them against the wall without anchors, but i plan on putting them in later

It has Character and it works
better than that, it matches the character of the surroundings. Old farmhouse with feildstone basement. rack is situated in old cistern, where you can see the opening they busted out and didn't bother to do neatly
dulled my skillsaw blade by trying to cut thru nails in the pallet. time to get a new blade to abuse.

It looks like a good, sturdy, stable wine rack. Congrats!

you can use the "wrong" types, but you have to cut them different and screw sides boards on them. just wrecked a cheapo circular saw blade yesterday by trying to cut thru a nail, tommorrow I'm getting a carbide one to finish the job.
I have a hard time finding the right pallets around here!! They have cut outs for a forklift and ruins the stability when cutting them! I've looked at stacks of them, only to find the wrong kind! If they weren't built so tough... I'd rip them and remake them.
maybe tommorrow I'll take some pics with cut lines shown to illustrate how to use "wrong" pallets. It'll differ depending on pallet style tho.
