Introduction: Pallet Cat Bed

About: I'm just a 16 year old kid that likes to makes stuff :-)

Does your cat always sleap EVRYWHERE? Hear is the solution. A pallet cat bed. Just folow the simple instructions an you will have a place for your cat to sleap in no time!! You can also store cat stuff under the bed.

Tool and stuff:
-3 x 10 by 60 By 2 cm or 3.9 by 23.6 by 0.7 inches pallet plank
-wood saw
-sanding paper
-all kinds of screws
-20 by 40 cm or 7.8 by 15.7 inches wooden plank
-corner brackets

Step 1: Measure and Cut

First you have to cut one of the 60 by 10 planks in half.Than cut the 5 by 4 cm or 1.9 by 1.5 inches stick in four pieces. These peices have to be 20 cm or 7.8 inches long. Now sand evrything down real good. Make sure to get the nasty green stuff off. You can look at the pictures for more information.

Step 2: Assemble

Now you have to put evrything together. Begin with connecting the 40 by 10 planks to the 20 by 5 by 4 cm stick. Put them together with 2 screws on each stick. Be sure to use woodglue. Do this twice. Now put the 4 20 by 10 cm pallet plnaks on the two frames you made before. ( look at the picture for how to put them on the two other things you made). Now get the 20 by 60 cm wooden plate and put it on the frame with te corner brackets and screws, it doesnt matter how big the corner crackets are but you just have to make sure they can reach to both of the plates.

If you get stuck you first have to take a good look at the pictures and if you still dont get is you can just ask me in the comments.

Step 3: The Soft Cloth

For this project i choose a tablecloth for the cat to lay on. I asked my mother to sew the cloth into a bag so i can put the soft matirial in it. After sewing everything together and making a kind of cushion out of it, i put it on the cat bed with white pins. To not make scratches on the wooden floor i put felts on the bottom. Just for fun i put small cat paws on the front with a marker.

You're done!! Have fun with your new cat bed. If you want you put cat stuff like cat food and many other things under it.

If you got any questions you can just ask me in the comments.
