One of my friends has bought a number of pieces of my art, and now wants me to make a Steel Canopy Bed that will be a simple design executed in rusty (her favorite "finish") 4x4" square tube . It'll have a fancy Plasma Cut Headboard with four inset little boxes for Prayer Scrolls (Hey, and this isn't even California!!)...She's a very Spiritial Person.
My Question...This will be in their master bedroom in their Rammed Earth house (its pretty cool, her husband is an architect), and at some point in the future will no doubt be moved...so how do I make the most "invisible seam" corners that can be disassembled in the future so it can be removed? I've thought of "slip fit" of some type..Smaller tube inside piece with round head allen bolt attachment? Heavy "L" brackets inside with bolts? A "Drop-Down" into the vertical tube, with exterior 4" "L" bolt-on top? The seam must be as invisible as possible.
Its all my fault for bringing up the "make it removable" thing...but they would have thought about it 1/2 way through the project, and "get a Sawzall" probably wouldn't be a good answer...although I keep thinking that might be the best solution...then brackets could be fabbed by the new owner at that time.
Will I be able to much welding (with my little friend, the 125EZ) on site, or is warping going to be major headache? I didn't want this job, but it keeps coming back to me. Wide open for suggestions and advice, guys!
