Attach the sideboards to the headboard and footboard using small screws and some wood adhesive, being careful not to crack the wood by using screws which are too big. Next we do the outer trims, which should again be cut using the same dimensions as the bed. Attach these to the bed frame. Now we move on to the slats which add stability to the bed. Cut a dozen of these pieces and attach them between the sideboards at regular even intervals. These can be screwed to the bed frame using small screws. If you have small joint cracks you can apply some of the filler/adhesive/spackle you bought to fill these in. Always perform a strength check at this point as any inherent weaknesses will be amplified at the finished stage by loose joints or cracked wood during the building process.
If we start by taking a look at the wood, we would advise using MDF (medium density fibreboard) for the bed as this will give it an overall strength. For your army of tools you’ll require saws, sanding machines or paper and ideally a jigsaw plus nail gun, although obviously you can start with the more manual tools like a simple hammer, but you will find a small investment in tools will make all of your woodwork projects much easier time and effort wise. Don’t forget other sundries including nails, screws, adhesives, filler and spackle to cover over thin cracks in the wood joints.
Who wouldn’t want a comfortable and a longer sleep time for their babies? It’s what the doctor has told us all these years -- give our babies enough sleep every single day. So let’s give our babies the comfort that they deserve. One of the things that you have to decide while your baby is growing up is when to change their beds. Is that crib in the room a bit smaller now for your toddler baby? Smaller beds would mean smaller space for them to move around. And the smaller the space, the less comfortable it is to sleep at. So decide now whether to get your baby a toddler bed or a regular single bed?
