Make a garden swing bed from timber pallets

Summer is almost here, and what better way to spend time outdoors than relaxing in a swing bed. This swing bed is made from reclaimed timber pallets, but you can make out of any reclaimed timber - or even make one from scratch using PAR pine from your local Builders Warehouse.

To make a swing bed you will need two timber pallets joined together with nuts and bolts. Make sure the timber is in good condition and the slats are sturdy and not broken. Drill holes at the end of the pallet, as shown below, for threading through thick nylon or cotton rope. Tie these off on a support structure or tree branch.



Use nylon or thick cotton rope to hang the bed. Have enough rope at each end to thread through and back up to tie off on a tree branch or support structure.
