My buddy has, essentially, a fully-functioning bar in his home. His storage area behind the bad was getting cluttered, using an ill-fitting stairstep rack for all of the liquor bottles. He asked for some help, so I made a new one. It is made from 3/4” pallet slats mounted on stringers made from 2×12 planks just as you would for a staircase. He also needed a ready-tray to hold all the commonly-used mixers that mounts to the bar itself, behind which the bartender stands. Properly sealed, these pieces should easily last as long as his liver! ;-) Fun little projects using recycled pallet wood.

I would cut a narrow dado across the nail holes and glue in a strip of wood. Or you coul drill them out and plug the holes with dowels.

Awesome! have piles of pallets waiting to get some attention way to go for doing it! How do you feel about copycats?

I think “copycats” are great….I would be flattered. I’m constantly looking for pallets…..
