After finishing the end frames of the cot, Paul moves on to create the grooves along the long pieces using the plough plane. Paul takes you through the process whilst troubleshooting a slight problem he incurs with the plane. Once the grooves have been cut, Paul moves on to cutting the tenons for the long rails which then fit into the mortise holes within the front and back frames.
Important: Baby safety is a very important issue and many countries and regions have rules on how to keep babies safe. In building this cot we read through our own country’s guidance on this and we have done our best to interpret it and follow it. However, if you build a cot you should do your own research and make sure you follow the relevant guidance. This guidance changes regularly and differs from one place to another. Please do not follow what we have shown without checking it for yourself. The instruction we give should only be used as a starting point for the construction method. Setup, configuration and measurements of the cot you make should be checked to ensure that they are compliant with the guidance relevant to you.
