In this episode, Paul demonstrates how to measure and cut the slats of the cot. After configuring the slats and numbering each one, it’s time to fit the slats into the rails, but not before applying a water-based finish onto the wood. Paul glues spacers in between the slats in order to maintain the exact distance between them. After this, Paul takes you through fitting the frame fixings that connect the back and front frame to the long rails.
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.
