floats packaging concept is not only very useful to transport and store the bed, it helps me to join the rods with the tube corners precisely. The tenons of the rods are turned over-sized and I compress them to fit into the tubes with a nautical glue. The mid rail of the inner frame contains small cutaways to hold the outer frame parts exactly. The rods and tubes are taped during this process to avoid stains from the glue.
