Re: Are you leaning toward the rounded DTs?

It sounds like you are based on your comment that the recipient finds the square edged piece favorable.

I already commented, but maybe a repeat will get everyone on the same page as you're on - I think it's an improvement and rounded or beveled to protect the tails (and the temple of anyone who sits on the floor and slips against a corner) would both look nice compared to the industrially made look of the original.

I get the sense that a lot of the danish furniture was made with profitability in mind. Not all of it, but a lot of the bent and veneered stuff. If you make a piece with DTs at the edge, and then be so bold as to round or bevel them to show off that they're airtight all the way through, it certainly won't look cheap!
