    Need Help with Parts with Arcs

    I find using the SU arc tool to be simple in a few cases, and utterly frustrating in many others.

    I am trying to bring together the arced rail in the bed shown below, with a corresponding short curved section of the vertical leg.

    I am struggling with many constructions lines, trial and error arcs, and am wondering if anyone here has a better way.

    Shown below is the overall bed design (photos) I would like to achieve and my progress on the model area that is most difficult.

    Any comments on how to do this?
