I recently was called by an old friend that asked if i could build a bed frame. Sure is what i told him… The only question is could i use pallet wood… He stood there with a confused face. I told him give me 1 day and i will design one in the computer to see if he would like it. The following day he came by and was shocked…

“Can you really build this?” i answered his question with a question, “do you trust me?”

Wow, great recycling job with amazing results! So far I have only managed to turn a few used pallets into bicycle racks and an outdoor platform for the yard. Little did I know they can be used for underneath storage frame for the bed? I guess you must be a little bit more creative in order to achieve something as grand as this.

Thanks everyone..

@tyvekboy It is sturdy and durable. Thanks for your supervising and advice.
@surfside Thanks i have many more adaptive reuse projects to come.
@boardcop Thanks
@majula Thanks
@bruc101 I designed for it to last atleast ten years
@udyregan all it takes is time. the more you design beyond your limits the creativity will pure. But most of all i need to perfect the craft.

It was an enjoyable building process with a stress free client. it doesnt take a creative to design but applying yourself to be limited to only reuse will adjust your perspective on how to design…

does the pallet wood warp much once it is taken inside from the outdoors?

no because the wood was already pressure and heat treated.

So all the heat treated pallet wood I have at work, will be fine for furniture making? how long do I have to let it dry in my garage before using it? lets say it rained a week before I grab the pallets. I noticed the wire spool that I got was heat treated, I sanded it down, left it outside and part of it warped a very small amount.

it has to be both pressure treated and heat treated.
