I have seen the pallet racks, but most stores in my area do not give away pallets. I talked to HomeDepot which I am a huge fan of, and frequent multiple times a week, and if I speak with the manager, I may be able to get broken pallets.

Great idea on the "Skid Row Wine Rack." I just happen to have a bunch of them stacked out in the yard from some projects I did. I am going to make a wine rack out of those that are 2 way pallets. Thanks for the idea and info. Gary

Anyone ever tried stainless steel or galvanized welded wire mesh? (the kind they use for concrete reinforcement or certain type of fencing)
They come in a variety of opening sizes.
I think stainless steel could actually look cool especially if cut diagonally, though I doubt it would be cheap.

There have been a few threads on here about using 4"x4" mesh livestock panels. I believe they're lot dip galvanized and not prone to rusting. A 4'(?) x 16' panel is $32 usually at Tractor Supply, but I've found them on sale there for $16, bought 10 at the time. There have been pictures on here of some very nice wine racks made from these.

Concrete reinforcing is very prone to rusting, in fact it's usually solid rust when you buy it.

Stainless, if you could even find it, would be cost prohibitive. Just guessing, but probably well over $100 for a 4' x 16' panel.

I was thinking galvanized - which is used in reinforcing as well. I agree the regular (not galvanized or painted) is useless , even for concrete reinforcing.

I did masonry for 13 years and never saw galvanized or anything but the rusty steel used. But that's been a while ago. Maybe they use stainless or galvanized now, especially on government projects, smileytoast.gif That's Blackberry... I say Blackberry speakin'!

You'll see lots of road projects that use a coated rebar, but I don't think they are galvanized. In over 40 years in construction, I've never seen galvanized rebar unless it is specifically sent to a galvanizer for a particular architectural feature (like a deck railing.) Once inside the concrete, it is pretty well isolated from O2 and liquid water and doesn't rust.

For a wine cellar, galvanizing the metal would not be necessary because there just isn't enough moisture in the air to start rusting. So have at it. Order 4x4 10-10 WWM.

For bridges they use green painted steel now - hmm, maybe its coated, never stopped to check.

The other week while I was at Lowe's I noticed they sell the green rubberized paint as a spray paint. There is also a rubberized spray paint for your car undercarriage that should work too. That actually may look pretty cool now that I think of it. Plus it being rubberized will help keep the bottles in place.

Yup thats Plastidip but you can buy any rubberized spray paint to get the same effect.
