Here is a rough SketchUp model of the frame. SketchUp is an amazing program available for free from Google. It is great for rendering an idea, but after using so many full-function CAD programs, I get frustrated with what it can almost but not quite do. You cant beat the price though. I am still doing all of the detailed joinery drawings and calculations by hand. As much as I love doing this with CAD software, sometimes it is faster by hand.
