I showed a while ago this swing bed and it was a complete success, OK the idea of lying under a tree in a real bed and at full Spring can not fail! 😀 So it’s not a surprise…
So today I decided to show you how to build this furniture, always following my method… however you can always make the changes that you believe appropriate 😉
For this specific hanging bed we’ll 4 europalets, and 2 of them cut, so then the bed will not be literally giant, and will meet our needs.
We’ll join them forming what would be a conventional double bed .
Now we will fix the pallets below using wooden boards, at this step we can use bought boards or other pallet boards cut to the correct dimensions for the occasion. Spare no tables, if the bed is broken and you fall down you are going remember it !
Here you can see how it looks under with all the boards fixing the pallets with nails in all its dimensions .
Finally use 2 wooden long thick sticks to create the attachment points of the strings. You can use thick and straight tree branches, and even strips of considerable dimensions. Remember that the wood must be thick enough to support the weight of the bed for 2 persons , about 200 kg (440 pounds).
And here you can see how cool it is in front of a lake and a cokes machine XD “Jameos del agua” style …
It is difficult to get a lake… but the hanging bed ? easier yeah?!
Take a look to this video to see a 3D animation and the instructions:
