Furniture plan cot: cot Leon make yourself
Make the cot for your future (grand)child yourself! With our clear construction drawing, it cannot fail. And then you have a beautiful, original, light-footed and safe cot. Based on the working drawing, it is easy to make adjustments to make the bed completely to your own liking. The cot has an adjustable bed base and can be disassembled for storage or transport.
We have of course tried to design an original and practical piece of furniture. With this cot we have taken a number of specific things into account:
In terms of design, the cot fits in with the children’s room ‘family’ Leon, consisting of chest of drawers, cupboard and cot. The style characteristics are mainly reflected in the construction and shape of the rejuvenated legs. (Incidentally, there is also an oval side table ‘Leon’ with the same rejuvenated legs.) We have ensured that the cot is demountable for storage or transport, and also that the bed base is adjustable (two positions).
We also always try to get the furniture efficiently from standard dimensions of sheet material. Ledikant Leon can, except for the bed base, be made entirely of mdf.
We pay a lot of attention to keeping screw joints out of sight as much as possible. We also describe how you can make connections with dowels in some places, so that you do not need any screws at all. If you want to paint the furniture in an opaque color, it is sufficient to neatly conceal screw connections with the help of filler. Our furniture makers’ tips describe how to do this.
We have also taken safety into account. The cot is super stable and meets the safety requirements regarding the distance between the bars and the height of the side walls compared to the bed base. To be fair, we have only recently adjusted the latter. You can therefore still see photos and images of ledikant Leon with less high side walls. Nicer, we think, but in the end we gave in to the generally applicable safety rules.
Can I do that?
Finally, the design is tailored to the possibilities and limitations of the DIY and his/her tools. If you have a handsaw (sometimes jigsaw) and drill and can handle it, you can make all our furniture, so to speak. The sawing of the panels can almost always be done by your wood supplier. If you want to do it yourself, we recommend using a circular saw.
As you may have seen from the photos of made furniture, it is very easy to make changes to the dimensions and/or design yourself. The clear saw list and building drawings will automatically give you the confidence to do so.
The work drawings pack / the building drawing
The work drawings package consists of a nicely crafted brochure on A4 format. At the start you will find the list of necessities such as the wood (sheet material) and screws (size and number), glue and any other parts. It also shows what tools you need, and a cutting list with the sizes of the parts of the furniture to be cut.
Finally, in a roadmap, the manual for the assembly of the furniture follows, with clear drawings and clear explanations.
Each piece of furniture includes a number of appropriate furniture making tips on material selection, sawing, screwing, adhesives, sanding and lacquering, etc. When doweling is mentioned as an alternative, an explanation is also included, enough to get started with self-confidence.
