Then MEASURE the depth of the pet bed. It’s 17.3 in and NEED 6 pcs slats in this size.
2 for the top, 2 for the side and 2 legs.

After that you NEED 1 more stick from the rest of the first halved pallet – it’s 24.8 in long – and 1 cube. And the last slat you need is a 13.7 in long for the front.
USE a recoprocating saw by taking apart.

The next step is creating the entry of the bed - SAW a 8.6 in wide gap by the right side.
FIX the cube to the sticks left by the entry – it will be the left side of it.

SAND the surface completely with a 100 grit paper. You can use a rotary tool by the edge and the hard approachable space.

    Nice looking bed but since dogs like to rest against something how about putting some padding around the sides.

    If the pallet is constructed of 'pressure treated wood', you are likely poisoning the pets. Research the damage that can be caused by using pressure treated wood for something like this.

      Good advice, but you overlooked the paint it could have lead and the dogs could have learning disabilities and not perform well in school

    I saw a similar crate bed that I had plans to make, but your instructions seem easier to build. Thirst are perfect for when dogs board my home; stays in place.
    Thank you for your inspiration!
