Building a bed frame, here's some pics. this is the foot board, the head board will be in similar design, but just taller.
square tubes are 2x2x3/16
round tubes are 1.5x1/16
gussets are made out of 1/8" plate (thx ZTFab for the shearing)
the reason the center platform is lower is because a 2x2 tube will go there, the outside platforms are higher is because angle irons will go there.
this is my first project involving round tubing, but i have messed around with round tubing before. due to the design and size of this thing, some of the round tube welds are difficult to get to, so had to be welded in several phases... which messed with my mojo. I suppose i'm fairly consistent withing each 2 inch long weld, but i have some trouble when its broken up and have to weld it in different directions.
comments, concerns, critiques, and hints welcome.
