Step 2. Construct Wine Glass Rack
- Choose one of the planks for the glass rack. Mark evenly spaced, 50mm-deep notches along the front edge. Keep the size and quantity of your glasses in mind when determining the spacing and width of the notches, which will hold each wine glass from its base. Cut out the notches with your Jigsaw.
- Use your Drill driver to drill pilot holes. Secure the remaining plank to the bottom of the pallet frame with two 38mm wood screws at each end.
Tip: Dry pallet wood splits easily, and drilling pilot holes before driving in screws helps prevent snapping a piece in half. You’ll want to use a bit that has a slighter smaller diameter than the screw’s shank, which is the solid portion of the threaded area.
- Attach Spacers to Shelf Base
- Stand each shim piece on its edge to create 25mm spacers between the base and the glass rack. Keep each spacer’s edge square with the base plank, and avoid placing the spacers over the screws securing the base. Drill pilot holes and secure each shim with two 38mm wood screws.
Step 3. Attach Rack to the Base of the Shelf
With your drill/driver, secure the glass rack to the spacers by drilling a pilot hole on each end and driving in a 25mm wood screw.
