Here is a horseshoe wine rack that would fit in with any decor; especially a country cabin. The project is pretty simple; you just need some welding skills, a welder, and some horseshoes. If you do not possess any of those; talk to your friends, neighbors and relatives. You will be surprised at how many people either have those skills and tools, or knows someone that does. The horseshoes might be a little harder to find.
The process is pretty straight forward and Imgur user zmastakeyz did a great job of documenting the process as seen below.

7Finish It With Your Choice Of Color
8Fill It With Wine
Looks pretty good; doesn’t it?
If you spend some time googling horseshoe projects; you will be surprised at how many different products you can make out of this simple piece of metal. It might just be worth taking a welding class, and starting an ETSY store.
Another option would be to watch some youtube videos on wire welding; it is relatively simple; I wouldn’t try building a bridge though.
If you can’t find a local source for old shoes, Amazon has them available.
Good luck with your future home-based business!
