Re: replacing timber bed slats

Hi @DavidBrent,


The slats look to be around 70-90mm wide and 19mm thick. You should be able to easily remove the broken slats and replace them with similar-sized timber. Replacing the boards should be a straightforward process as they are typically just laid in position and no fixed at all; you'll just need to pick up the correct-sized replacement timber. 


Please let me know if you have any questions.
