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.

    Did you make sure it was a heat treated pallet and not a chemically treated pallet?

      Leave the pallet full size size. Use 2 or 3: to stack them high enough for Lab's. Only cut what you need to .

    Where do you find the pillow to fit inside? Is it a regular bed pillow?
