Covered hammock bed – There are a number of ways to make this bed or hammock with pallet to enjoy the outdoors with all the comfort that a pallet hammock built by us can provide, and can be as simple as using a pallet and a rope. But as in all design and construction there are some details that we must pay attention to so that the design is fluid and we can have our pallet bed as soon as possible. Measure the size of the mattress or cushion that you are putting on the pallet and find out how many pallets you will have to use to adapt to your mattress. We use 2 pallets and add additional pieces in the middle to get the right length for ours. We added 12 centimeters to the average, the total length of our platform was 80 inches. Take into account the space you need for the rope at the ends.
Covered hammock bed, slide the 2 x 4 wood through the inside of the pallets, one on each interior edge of the platform and one in the middle. Screw the 2 x 4 to the sides and the middle part of the pallet. If necessary, add additional tables from another pallet to your main piece, add two tables of a damaged pallet to half of ours. Cut the 2 x 4 that remains beyond the length of the pallet.
Covered hammock bed, drill holes in the four corners of the platform, both the upper and lower pallet plates. Make sure the hole is large enough so that the rope can pass through. Pass the rope through the hole, making sure that the rope goes under the bottom of the platform and in the 2 × 4. Attach firmly. Tie the rope firmly to the tree. Insert the mattress to the vinyl covers. Place on the top of the hammock.
