    Steve, I thought you lived in Florida? You had a post a few months back. I think it was in reference to the woodworkers guild convention?

      Wine should always be stored at an angle so that the cork is completely covered by the wine on the inside. If the wine is not in contact with the cork, the cork can become brittle. Opening the bottle becomes trickier because the cork is more likely to break and/or sprinkle cork bits down into the wine.

    I still can’t believe you guys get pallets made of oak.

    Steve, Thanks for pointing out to me that pallet projects should not be perfect. And thanks for urging me to paint wood. You inspired me to finish my patio cooler from pallet wood. I’ll send a photo as soon as its assembled and painted.

    On the 5 degree angle thing…..if your wine bottle needs tilting to 5 degrees to ensure the cork is fully in contact with the wine, then someone had a sneaky drink out of the bottle. I think the angle is redundant and works against the aesthetic….but what do I know? Your pallet wood is much better quality timber than any we get here in the UK and you are dead right about monetising projects. It seems that cash from trash is global.

    Gareth, Wine is stored the same way in some Napa Wineries. Some really high end wine coolers are built with slightly angled racks as well.

    If you don’t have to tilt the bottle, then you have some really cheap wine.

      That was from a set of stencil letters I got at a craft store.
