If you have a pet, I hope you will love this DIYs Pallet wood Twin Dog Bed. I hope to inspire you to make something special and personal for your furry loved one. I was inspired when my neighbor said she could use a dog bed that two dogs could use sharing the space but dividing the dogs space at the same time. The dogs love it and I hope you will to.
This project started with a few pallets made from 1 x 4 in boards. These are easy to find at places that receive large things that need to be put into crates. I like using this material because there is not a lot of nail removal so I us it when I can. I also grab these board anytime I see them out by the curb. The only problem with this wood is that some time and in my case a lot of it is warped. One way to help with that is when you can cut the boards to shorter lengths like I did on the bottom of the bed. This will make the twisting and warping less noticeable.
I also use pocket screws and glue to put this project together. Thanks to some help I was able to sand the whole project down and make it ready for stain in a reasonable amount of time. We would not want those pets to get splinters.
After the final sanding I applied some carbon grey stain to the outside and inside.
This was a very fun project and I enjoyed building this dog bed for my friend and neighbors.
Feel free to message me with any questions that you may have about the project I will be glad to support you on yours.
Thanks friends for viewing my post.
