Exodus 25:12 - Footings of the Ark of The Covenant - Part 3

In conclusion, I would like to say that it seems quite possible that the Ark of The Covenant had 4 round "footings" or "legs" in its four corners. Like so:

If my reasoning is correct, it seems that these four "footings" elements of the Ark design have corresponded to the similar round elements of the framework of the Tent of the Tabernacle. Which in turn means that they were around 0.15 cubits in diameter; proportional value, based on the measurements of the elements of the framework.

Here is the rendering of the the Ark of The Covenant replica model with four round "footings" from The Replica Prop Forum (this thread):

And here is the diagram of the above model, if you are interested in exact measurements of this particular model. Diagram is also from The Replica Prop Forum, but from a different thread.
