Is pine ok for first bed?

Submitted by elpeedros on Tue, 08/20/2013 - 17:36

Hey everybody. First time building with wood. I am planning on making a pallet style bed similar to the image below. I was wondering what y'all thought about using pine to make it with. I don't care too much about scratches or stain being uneven. I kind of want it to look home made and don't mind if it gets a little beat up. The only modifications I'm thinking about doing to the following is making it full size and about 8 inches tall.

Pine would be fine for building something like that.

You can also use a wood conditioner before staining that helps get an even finish on your wood.
