    Peace
    First of all well done
    But Note that what was on pallets used for storage time, it is possible that they were toxic substances
    Soaked into the wood so it is advisable to use them only for patio furniture

    Most people consider plastic to be terrible for the environment since it takes hundreds of years to biodegrade.

    Whats wrong with using the plastic pallets tio make the childs/youth bed they may not be totally free but can still be used the same way.

    I enjoy reading about the many projects on this website.
    We do however need to be careful about some the items we promote. I did a student design project based on upcycling pallets a few years ago. One important lesson we discovered along the way was that we don’t know what these pallets have been in contact with before (potential harmful chemicals or bacteria). Therefore, we should avoid anything related to food prep.
    I would also avoid uses like the childs crib / youth bed.

    Best

    I appreciate the idea pictured here and the intent to upcycle. I do however have to mention that I have read on a number of sites, including the FDA that pallets can often harbor unpleasant things like salmonella, listeria, E-colli, and others. I wouldn’t put my child in a bed with the potential to have those nasties surrounding them without taking some serious precautions.
