Beautiful frame, but you probably need to rethink the legs. :)

Thank you friends … This bed I worked for a friend who is planning to construct a metal holder for the mattress, and will rely on five round wooden legs that will not be visible …

I’ll try to explain how to work with pictures and words … although at first glance it looks easy not easy, it takes except math and multiple work demands …

First, the processing of wood on a square shape pieces 4, when combined all four of the cube should have the desired dimension inscribed circle …
On the prepared plates of plywood Screws tighten all four pieces on the lathe process to the desired diameter of the circle …
When processing circuit on the lathe obtained four rounded part, the inner edge sweep angle of 45 degrees and the saw at an angle it stops slowly hollowed out the bottom of the circular arc chop .Taj part not painted … I do not know how much I make myself clear, I apologize for errors in the writing (I do not know Doobra speak your language), and the second time I every working part to paint step by step …

Vanzemaljac: Would you ever consider using a radiused and pinned finger joint? That’s what I used for my ribbon table.

Johnhutchinson my friend

Table is a fantastic, beautiful design and perfect precision work …

I think I’m anything like radio with roof showcases but I’m not sure

Thanks, Vanzemaljac! You might say that I cheated because I used 3/4” Baltic birch plywood. I doubt that my joint would work with solid wood. I made a pattern for the C shapes and then made a bunch on my router table.

I love your arch top cabinet !!! I’m glad that we can talk about bending wood to our will although we’re separated by half a world.

I think my ribbon table would be the perfect companion for your bed. Maybe two?

By the way, finger joint is another way of saying box joint .
