So I'm getting a Glimakra Julia. It comes standard with a metal warping "beam" - basically a piece of pipe.
However they make a custom wooden cover for it. After talking to the guy at Glimakra USA, I'm sure that this wooden cover is NOT suitable for attaching sectional beam pieces as it is made from slats of wood only 3/16" thick.
The reason this matters to me is that I really really REALLY want to be able to put a sectional beam on this - basically to be able to screw on the 4 raddle-like pieces that make up a sectional beam. Since this wooden beam cover is apparently made from warp sticks (or at least from the blanks from which they make the warp sticks), its nowhere near heavy duty enough to try to screw a sectional beam to.
But what if I took pieces of 2x2 and screwed those to the metal warp beam in the pre-drilled holes meant for the wooden beam cover, and attached the sectional beam pieces to those? So I would make a "box" of the 2x2s (which may require spacers on the inside over the predrilled holes to keep the box centered over the beam), attach the sectional beam pieces to that, and have a "sectional beam". I may need to insert spacers between the box surfaces and the sectional pieces to make sure the threads of the warp are above the corners of the "box" - but do you think that could work?
