In this episode, starting with the top to bottom rails, Paul takes you through placing the slats into the rails by cutting to size small pieces of wood to sit in between each slat. After piecing the slats together with the rail, Paul is then able to establish the measurement for the upright and the exact position of the mortise hole. Paul then continues to cut the upper rail tenon with his dovetail saw and then walks through how to cut the mortise hole in the long frame.
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.
