Hi. This is Jon. And in this clip, we'll be creating the top slats. Now that our base has been assembled, we're going to go ahead and start creating these top slats. On our materials list, we need five pieces that are three and three-quarter by 24 inches long. We're again going to start on the radial arm saw, and measure out 24 inches, and make our cut. And again, we're going to be making five of these. Next, we're going to set up our table saw to three and three-quarter inches and rip each of our pieces. After we have our five top slats, we are ready to create our cleat.
