One of the most fantastic things about working with wood is that the creative possibilities are endless.

In the past, we’ve seen how versatile wood can be, from crafting floorboards with only pallets, to building massive, sturdy suspension bridges.

Recently, an Imgur user and avid DIY crafter decided to make something special for his wife. She’d fallen in love with a picture of a beautiful wine rack online — so, this sweet hubby decided to replicate it to the best of his abilities.

He started out with simple fence panels that had blown over last winter.

He faced some structural challenges along the way, but was determined to make an addition to the kitchen that was perfectly rustic.
