- 3 pallets ($free)
- 45 each screws ($6.00)
- 1 bottle wood glue ($5.00)
- 1 bottle wood stain ($6.00)
- Take apart and remove nails from pallets. Let them dry for a few days, if needed. Wet wood will not sand or cut well!
- Measure your door length, width, and depth. I used 78x19x4.5 inches. Make sure to make room for door handle and make sure it is at least 4 inches from where the door shuts (not hinge side), so it can close.
- We used a planer to make all the boards the same thickness. They were run through 4 times (18 mm, 16 mil, 13, and 10), as well as the 1.5 inch boards at a half inch thick so the bottles don't fall out.
- All were sanded with 60 grit, 150 grit and finally 220 grit. Smooth as a baby's butt! lol Finish with 3 coats of a good poly-stain or your choice. Pallets are a dry wood.
- We used our drill for the pocket holes (great invention), 1.25 inch #8 screws (45 pieces), wood glue, as well as a brad nail gun (1 inch brads 18 gauge).
- And last but not least, 2 2.5 carriage bolts with 1 washer and locking nut (through the door) to hang on the top of our hollow door, and 2 screws at the bottom for stability
