Pallet style bed
almost made from pallets…
This post comes from my Pallet style bed blog .
Ok, that is a little foolish, but the truth!
For the first time in quite a few years I have a real bedroom, so I wanted to build myself a really nice bed.
I had no budget, meaning it was ok if it was not cheap.
But I have been in love with the idea of a pallet bed for quite some time, and so I wanted to realize that dream.
First step was to check where I could get some pallets at a fair price since I wanted them new, and that was possible.
Next step was to make a design. I wanted it to be floating in the air and not just a bunch of pallets standing on the floor so I needed to make a frame to hold the different pallets together and so I started to design this.
It was while doing this I realized that it became so complex and the idea of a cheap pallet bed was lost.
So I tried to design my own pallet instead and then check the price for raw wood and found out it was app half the price than buying the pallets and then the system would have doubled the price.
(Read the story in the blog).
1. My new bed, from the eye of a fly.
2. Wood arrives.
3. Starting to look pallet like…
4. Two cuts with the plunge saw.
5. Scrap is a gift for the stove.
6. Good night…
Hope this can bring some inspiration.
