First, we took an old piece of decking that was 5 1/2″ wide.  Using this piece of wood we were able to make the bottom and end pieces.  The ends were run across the table IMG_2704saw to create the groove in which a small piece of a pallet slat was inserted to keep the bottles from banging into one another.  The ends were then IMG_2699screwed together after drilling pilot holes.  Two more pallet slats were cut down to create the side and simply nailed into place.  By drilling 2 holes both ends we were able to fit some old rope IMG_2698in which we attached to a mulberry branch from the property.  They grow back extremely fast so don’t feel bad about cutting a IMG_2701branch off.  In the end, we decided to put a bottle opener on the side and it’s done!  We hope you enjoy yours as much as we enjoy ours.IMG_2703
