An idea for construction ...

If I build the corners from a solid section, it is relatively straight forward to orient the grain and then plane the inside hollow and rounded outside. This is the picture I posted earlier ...

The issue is how the mix of cross- and long grains would look. Very busy in my expectation.

An idea that has occurred to me (suggested by this picture, actually) - to hide the corner being an added section - is to make the entire carcase with the grain running across, rather than than along the length. It may be possible by bookmatching to hide any joins.

I've not seen a construction like this. Could be interesting :) What are your thoughts?

Regards from Perth

Derek
