Children’s bed building plan: making nicole yourself
Cot Nicole: playful cot with rounded corners and rejuvenated legs. Simply make your own original cot yourself using our step-by-step plan with clear instructional drawings. The bottom of the cot is adjustable, and the furniture is easy to disassemble for storage or transport.
In the design of cot Nicole we wanted to give the construction a prominent place. You can see this by the special way in which the cot is “hung” between the side walls. Furthermore, the cot has playful rounded corners and stands on slender, rejuvenated (=bevelled) legs. These style features can be found in the other two furniture from children’s room series Nicole.
In addition, we took a number of specific matters into account when designing.
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, of course, 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.
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. If you have professional tools, it only gets easier.

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 working drawing package | Building plan cot
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.
Each building plan contains a number of applicable furniture maker tips on material selection, sawing, screws, gluing, sanding and lacquering, etc. When the death is mentioned as an alternative, an explanation is also included. Enough to get started with confidence.
Finally, in a roadmap, the manual for the assembly of the furniture follows. With clear drawings and clear explanations.
