FIG. 3 is a bottom plan view of FIG. 1;

FIG. 4 is a front elevation view of FIG. 1;

FIG. 5 is a rear elevation view of FIG. 1;

FIG. 6 is a left side elevation view of FIG. 1;

FIG. 7 is a right side elevation view of FIG. 1;

FIG. 8 is a top front isometric view of the bottom of a foldably constructed pallet with angled sidewalls in an unfolded configuration;

FIG. 9 is a top plan view of FIG. 8;

FIG. 10 is a bottom plan view of FIG. 8;

FIG. 11 is a front elevation view of FIG. 8;

FIG. 12 is a rear elevation view of FIG. 8;

FIG. 13 is a left side elevation view of FIG. 8;

FIG. 14 is a right side elevation view of FIG. 8;

FIG. 15 is an exploded view of a foldably constructed pallet with angled sidewalls constructed by folding the top of FIG. 1 and the bottom of FIG. 8 along the fold lines shown by the dotted lines and connecting the top and the bottom together; and,

FIG. 16 is a top front isometric view of a foldably constructed pallet with angled sidewalls by connecting the top of FIG. 1 and the bottom of FIG. 8 together.

The dotted lines are for the purpose of illustrating the fold lines of the foldably constructed pallet with angled sidewalls. The broken lines shown in the figures are for the purpose of illustrating boundaries of the design and form o part of the claimed design.
