I am currently building the ever-so-popular, Wood Magazine crib:
I am replacing the side plywood panels with more slats, which is a popular modification.
The slats are placed in a groove, with inserts in between. The plans call for leaving the slats loose in the “mortise”. However, by removing the plywood panels, that leaves the crib with limited racking resistance.
Any thoughts/concerns for gluing the slats in place? As I tend to like to over design, I am tempted to do this in the front and back as well. However, I would hate to have problems with wood movement down the line. Fortunately, the slats (Walnut) run parallel to the grain, so I do not anticipate much movement.
