I have been work with pallets and this is what I came up with I call the bench/day bed . Good for out by the camp fire , just make it in to a bed and lay back and look at the night sky.
The back folds down and two legs fold down and the front comes out and a leaf go’s in like on a table sorry I did not get a pic. of this.
the last pic. is of some of the thing I have made with pallets .

Great project. Reuse, recycle and salvage is my motto. You have found a great way to save some pallets and turn them into something that will keep them out of the landfill or fireplace. Well done.

Excellent use of recycled pallets, unfortunately the pallets I have access to are not that nice so I strip what I can use and use the rest for test cuts and fire wood.
